ECREA has a new research group which focuses on journalism and communication education. They are planning to host their first conference next year in Trier, Germany on March 5-6. Call for papers began on November 22, 2014, and abstract deadline is set on 10 January 2015. The conference still needs a lot of reviewers.
The chair of the group, Michael Harmischmacher, is a reseacher in Universität Trier, Germany.
“Journalism education still lacks theories”, Harmischmacher stated.
