The biggest challenge for journalism schools today is teaching skills for a continually changing news industry. Yes, the number of students we enroll has shrunk (along with the size of many newsrooms), but there are still eager students who are interested in the field and an opportunity to make a difference in the world.
Technology has had a huge impact on what we teach (and the skills needed to teach). However, the fundamentals of excellent reporting, writing and critical thinking remain. A key change is that we now teach classes in social media, data journalism, video and virtual reality storytelling.
