III. Objectifs et méthodologies
Contribution de l'unité d'enseignement au profil d'enseignement * This course explores contemporary developments in journalism, at several levels: technological innovation, professional identity, work practices, business models and the relationship with the audience. The material for reflection will be based upon professional trade publications and empirical scholarly research. The main aim of the course is providing conceptual tools to interpret current and future trends, and their historical evolution. This will empower you to make decisions regarding your journalistic careers. An emphasis will be put in the analysis and management of innovation processes in newsrooms.
Objectifs de l'unité d'enseignement (et/ou acquis d'apprentissages spécifiques) * During the course, you will be able to develop the following skills: • Understand the main factors shaping the evolution of journalism • Synthesize the findings of relevant studies about innovation processes in journalism • Critically analyze discourses about the future of journalism • Design the basic elements of a journalistic project • Justify strategic decisions about news products (audience, content, work organization and business model)
Contenu de l'unité d'enseignement * • The dynamics of innovation • Journalism: between profession and industry • The crises of journalism and the utopias of the Internet • Evolution of consumption habits • From participation to engagement • Emerging news formats • Journalistic models • Rethinking journalistic practices • Ethics for Digital Journalists: Emerging Best Practices. • Business models: Beyond adblockers and adnetworks • Journalism elsewhere • Rethinking journalistic values and ethics • Organising news production and innovation
Méthodes d'enseignement et activités d'apprentissages * Each session will have a theoretical part, and a second part where we will discuss specific developments in journalism with a focus on a case. Readings will be proposed during the quadrimester for discussion in class, and related activities will be organised also online, using Twitter and UV. A report proposing a new journalistic project, in pairs, will put into practice the concepts discussed in class.
