The JMSC is expanding its news literacy programme across the Asia Pacific and aims to educate people on ways to think critically about the news they consume and how to tell whether factual news may be fabrication.
The JMSC has been awarded a one-year World Health Organisation (WHO) research grant to investigate whether cultural differences in Asia can impact the effectiveness of global health risk communication plans.
JMSC master of journalism students reporting on the Hong Kong Occupy Central protests have achieved great success with their stories, photos and videos published by major media organisations around the world.
Two distinguished educators will be teaching classes and presenting talks at the JMSC in November and December. Lifen Zhang will be teaching about the mainland Chinese media and Dan Gillmor will be teaching journalism entrepreneurship.
