Abstract or Summary

This presentation explores how it may be possible to teach a full journalism skill set based around a series of projects with real-world outcomes. This approach reverses the common model of teaching students to the point where they are capable of working in industry, and instead teaches them "on the job". This year we used five training opportunities: Maadi Cup, Fieldays, internship, Aims Games and a book of student-written profiles.
