The News Literacy Movement: An Issue with Answers

In our social mediated, turbo driven world of news is the journalist still in charge of content? If not, at what cost?  When content is driven by the news consumer should the journalist role change from gatekeeper to educator? Harkening back to 1990’s movements of civic journalism, but impacted by a 24/7 visually driven, social mediated new cycle should news literacy become a required course for all citizens, scholars and students?  Key questions that demand answers this panel will explore.

Using Media to Save the World - The Water Pressures Project

With a worldwide water crisis looming in 2050, and international youthled

broadcast and interactive media to change the tipping point and galvanize 20
year olds to get involved in local and global water issues.

Creating a Global City through the Global Campus Network

In an increasingly globalized broadcast world, students need to be able to leave their educational institutions with a strong understanding of both their immediate community and the international communities around them. But technological barriers have always prevented meaningful collaboration between universities. Ryerson University, along with partners at AUT University in Auckland, Rutgers University in the United States, and the Danish School of Media and Journalism (Danmarks Medie- og Journalisthøjskole) have partnered to create the first truly collaborative international student perspective of worldwide events and creative endeavors. We are looking for new partners to join the network, and will discuss our successes and challenges in producing our first pilot program in what is developing into an ongoing network of student creation in this session.
