Trial and Error in Journalism and Communication Education: Between the Classroom and Industry

This book explores the challenges of teaching journalism and communication in an ever-changing media environment. It considers the classroom as a space of “trial and error” and, therefore, of necessary innovation. It brings together professors and students from different universities across Europe to recount their teaching and learning experiences. The book also provides training proposals which offer an insight into the ongoing international debate on which teaching trends and practices can be effective in the digital environment. As such, the text will contribute to strengthening the university teaching of professional communicators based on technological innovation and critical thinking.
