'Model' a balanced approach
Review of Model Curricula for Journalism Education for Developing Countries and Emerging Democracies
What should journalism schools teach? This remains a vexing question the world over, including the Pacific. A century after the first journalism school began in the United States in 1902, a clear formula for journalsim education has yet to be defined. The issue remains contentious— it pitches the media industry against journalism schools and academics against eachother, Differences among staff within the same institutions are common... The issues are the same— which is better, on-the-job- or university training, and what is the right balance of practical skills and theoretical/liberal arts education.
