World Journalism Education Congress is a unique place to meet journalism educators and colleagues from all around the world. Every three years, the international community of journalism education get together to share their best teaching practices and to listen to top-notch research papers, all dedicated to journalism education.

Journalism education is currently facing unprecedented upheavals. Journalism schools now have to face a double challenge; both new expectations of journalism students concerning what should be taught in a journalism school, as well as the actual academic teaching methods themselves.

These major foreseeable evolutions illustrate that journalism schools could well be on the verge of radically changing the way they teach journalism.

Digitalization of contents will either lead to a deeper digital divide between journalism schools of different locations and different continents or, conversely, to a historical opportunity to pool the best education practices worldwide.

The panel "Knowledge sharing about innovative journalism teaching: How to better connect researchers and teachers working on journalism innovation", chaired by Tanya PampaloneManaging Editor of Global Investigative Journalism Network will feature Marius Dragomir, Director of Center for Media, Data and Society, Indra de LanerolleDirector of Journalism and Media Lab, South Africa and Alan SoonCo-founder & CEO of Splice Media as speakers.

Location: 

Paris-Dauphine University, Place du Maréchal de Lattre de Tassigny, 75016, Paris, France
