By Wirenews | 28 May 2020

NEW DELHI: News media and academia have been hit hard by the pandemic. A few weeks in, and newsrooms have already cut budgets and laid off reporters. Meanwhile, institutes of higher learning are thrown into the deep with uncertainty over the academic calendar and online teaching. Needless to say, journalism schools are having to deal with double the trouble. But times of crisis often give rise to innovation. J-schools are now learning to adapt and find new ways to train young journalists to do their job in a new and different world -- be it reporting on public health, wiring in updates from remote locations with spotty internet, or gathering enough information when movements are restricted. Educators from the leading J-schools in India are here to discuss this:

Dr. Anand Pradhan, Course Director, Indian Institute of Mass Communi-cations, New Delhi, Kanchan Kaur, Dean, Indian Institute of Journalism & New Media, Bangalore, Devadas Rajaram, Multimedia, Social Media and Mobile Journalism Expert, Asian College of Journalism, Chennai and Shajan C Kumar, Times School of Media, Bennett University, Greater Noida will share their experiences.
