Abstract:

Journalism is involved in substantial change caused by technological, social and economic developments, which lead to the need for innovation at every level: the working process, the content of the product, the form of the product, the public, the platform that is used to get the message across and the profession as a whole. For each of these elements of journalism we attribute one of the following major innovations: Transparency, navigation, storytelling, participation, crossmedia and entrepreneurship.

In which way will these innovations have an effect on the learning goals in European journalism education, according to professional journalists? Our research shows that there is a large consensus among European professionals concerning the future key qualifications for young journalists. Furthermore, there is not much evidence that a majority of European journalists is ready to make the jump to renewal, perhaps with the exception of online journalists. Most professional journalists across Europe appear to hold a rather traditional view on their profession.
