Special Issue: The Challenges of Teaching Political Journalism 

Guest Editors: Stephen Tanner and Shawn Burns

From Asia Pacific Media Educator

The relationship between politics and journalism is centuries old. University-based journalism programs have an important role to play in the training of political journalists.  Some universities recognize this by offering stand-alone political journalism subjects. Others do so by embedding political reporting across the curriculum, or by catering to the individual needs of students, not by offering political journalism subjects, but via individual project-based subjects. The key is flexibility: the ability to be able to respond to and cater for the needs of students. The special issue explores how political journalism is taught in universities.
