How journalism educators can create a new curriculum

During a live chat, Sara Quinn and the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Katy Culver talked about how journalism educators can adapt their curricula to reflect changes in the industry.

They offered practical tips and answered a range of questions, including these:

  • What are some of the toughest decisions that programs face when trying to change curriculum?
  • What makes a journalism curriculum effective?
  • Can individual educators make worthwhile adjustments -- or does change need to be made at the program level?

Below, you can replay the chat, which was tied to an upcoming Poynter seminar: "A new curriculum for a new journalism."
