Congres J-earn-alism

De opleiding Journalistiek organiseert op donderdag 14 april 2016 een studiedag rond nieuwe werkvormen en verdienmodellen in de journalistiek. De afgelopen vijf jaar is het medialandschap enorm geëvolueerd.

Niet alleen de manier waarop nieuws wordt gemaakt, maar ook de manier waarop het wordt geconsumeerd is sterk veranderd. Doordat nieuws ons steeds vaker bereikt via mobiele wegen en de advertentiemarkt in elkaar zakt, dalen de inkomsten van klassieke media.

Spring vrijdag 19 februari na de lunch eens binnen voor een babbel, een update van de innovatieprojecten of gewoon, een koffietje. Want zoals Max Havelaar schreef in 1860: open innovatie + open office = koffie.
