3 p.m.-4:30 p.m.
Thursday, April 28

In the wake of the day’s discussions,  Carrie Brown (City University of New York) and Rich Gordon (Northwestern University) begin the session with reflections on how transformation in news consumption and technological and educational innovation are changing the way we think – or ought to think – about the future of journalism education. Invited guests are encouraged to share their observations and insights into the essential question: What is the value proposition of journalism education for an age where, aided in part by rapidly evolving technologies, anyone can be a journalist and in which publishing models seem so unstable? Ryerson School of Journalism Chair Ivor Shapiro will make closing remarks. Wine and cheese served.
