Asia Pacific Media Educator


Three years ago in Toronto at the AEJMC pre-convention workshop I met with a group of journalism educators. We explored how we could better contextualise the delivery of journalism programmes to stay in tune with an internet-wired world. One of the imperatives we noted was to expose journalism students to learning opportunities where they could look at issues and affairs beyond the boundaries of their immediate community; and to develop in students the journalistic aptitude for interpreting and contextualising issues from a cross-cultural, ‘global’ perspective.
