From the press release:
Seeking to change the way journalism is taught in the United States, Carnegie Corporation of New York and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation are investing more than $11 million in the expansion of a national initiative to adapt journalism education to the challenges of a struggling news industry. Three new journalism schools are joining the effort of redefining journalism education and training a new generation of journalists capable of reshaping the news industry.
The expansion will deepen and extend:
* News21 (an experimental, online news incubator);
* Curriculum enhancement;
* and a journalism education policy task force.
Each foundation will contribute half of the new funding, and allocate it among each of the initiative's three distinct efforts.
How do you think change can be accelerated at journalism schools?
