Play • 49 min

In this episode, we talk through all things teaching and training related to journalism. From India, Harikrishnan Bhaskaran, Assistant Professor at the Central University of Himachal Pradesh, discusses how he and his coauthors have found educators and trainers talking about global efforts in teaching data journalism, including challenges and opportunities. In Norway, Ragnhild Olsen, Associate Professor at Oslo Metropolitan University, shares her coauthored work on blended learning during times of COVID and forecasts what lessons can be carried through in future journalism classes. And, recorded separately, Frances Yeoman, from Liverpool John Moores University, in the U.K., walks us through how senior journalism educators there apply aspects of practice-based learning and news literacy.
