About this Series

After the success last month with our Beyond Content Farms series, we decided to do another in-depth special series on MediaShift. This time the series will look at “Beyond J-School,” chronicling how journalism education and training are changing, and how journalists need more than traditional j-school. They need multimedia skills, social media knowledge, community management chops, and must learn to collaborate with their audience. It’s more than just learning the basics of journalism: They also need more background in business, entrepreneurship, technology and even programming. The entire series is linked below, and we’ll be updating it throughout the next two weeks.
