    6th Annual Conference of the ECREA Journalism & Communication Education TWG

    May 14 & 15, 2020, Barcelona

    "Rethinking digital native communicators' training"

    The educational environment has undergone deep transformations in the last decades: on the one hand, the training of future media professionals has been directly impacted by technological changes, on the other, twentieth-century teaching methods and 21st-century technology show a generation gap like never before: our students grew up with computers, internet access, smartphones, social media, and and acrive communication, and are increasingly less interested in traditional passive learning. The role of communication and journalism education, is not only to provide future journalist or communicators with new technological skills, but mainly to prepare them to adapt to a fast-moving world where things can change almost month by month as the interface between humans and the digital world becomes ever closer.

    In Barcelona, we want to take a closer look at the multi-faceted relationships between education, technology and digital native future media professionals. We invite you to submit academic research and project based experiences and various approaches (theoretical, methodological or empirical in nature). Please note that we invite contributions in various formats, e.g. workshops, panels and conference presentations.

    The conference will take place Thursday 14th May and Friday 15th May, 2020

    Deadline for submissions: Friday, 28th February, 2020

    THE FOCUS

    The ECREA European Media and Communication Doctoral Summer School 2020 brings together members of the European research community in order to debate contemporary issues in media, communication and cultural studies. The main emphasis of this summer school is not on a particular theme, but on providing structural and individuated PhD-support for young European scholars, through a variety of working forms, including feedback seminars, workshops, and lectures. The summer school aims to provide a supportive international setting where doctoral students can present their ongoing work, receive feedback on their PhD-projects from international experts and meet students and academics from other countries, establishing valuable contacts for the future.

    WHO CAN APPLY

    The summer school is open to the full variety of academic work in the broad field of communication and media studies. All PhD projects within the field of communication and media studies are welcomed. 

    The working language of the summer school will be English; therefore a sufficient understanding and ability to express oneself in this language is expected.

    The total number of students will be limited to 45.

    Registration fee at the summer school will be:

    • 840 Euros (700€ + VAT) for the ECREA members and
    • 990 Euros (825€ + VAT) for the non-members of ECREA.

    Summer School offers reduced participation fees for ECREA members. In order to qualify for a reduced participation fee, you can become ECREA member after you are accepted to the Summer School.
