Call for Submissions of Papers and Active Participation

Trust in news is a main concern for professionals, media companies and journalism teachers. Media organizations and the academy are challenged by audiences’ lack of engagement and trust in news contents.

Furthermore, journalism teaching deals with an important social fringe and news awareness in youth is particularly low. How can teachers promote the idea of building trust in news? The bond between news and audiences needs to be strengthened and young journalists may play an important role in this task in current times.

Several scholars and news reports point to the importance of a diagnosis in news consumption in order to tackle each particular factor and create solutions. Misinformation has increased due to the pandemic and the war, but the algorithm and AI also enhances distrust and doubts in contents. Verified information is a cornerstone in journalism. Teachers should be part of the debate and be able to engage students in this process.

We warmly invite you to present papers, workshops, best practices or panels under the subject of teaching how to build trust in news.

We believe that the Porto EJTA Teachers' Training in May 2024 will be an excellent opportunity to debate and find some answers on these challenging matters.

Come on board on the debate and submit your proposals until 23th March 2024 to
