His latest post identifies principles of journalism education, a subject in great debate at the moment as schools come to grips with multiplatform work and industry comes to grips with the need for more fluent participants in digital media.
Gillmor makes several prescriptions, but I'll select four main concepts:
1. Break down the age-old tracks of print, broadcast and online. Make it one.
2. Teach databases, statistics, research methodology, entrepreneurship and business as part of the journalism education.
3. Open up smaller programs for local teachers, parents and even for-a-fee programs for professional communicators.
4. Generate partnerships in the community and create a stronger research agenda.
Gillmor's post elaborates on the culture he believes needs to emerge in education. It's a thoughtful overview.
