One of the top priority activities of the Higher Education of Journalists in a Digital Environment (HEJDE) project – an interactive digital map of the higher education study programmes that educate journalists in Europe – was presented today by the HEJDE project leader Tijana Vukić at the annual international scientific conference of the ECREA's Temporary Working Group Journalism and Communication Education with the topic "Trial and Error IV”: Rethinking digital native communicators training in a global, online and changing world”.h

This year's virtual conference, attended by more than 50 scientists from European countries and wider, was hosted by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), Department de Periodisme i Facultat de Ciències de la Comunicatió.

The main aim of the presentation was to inform the group of scientists specialized in journalism and communication education about that significant and widely important activity, to network and appeal for collaboration in gathering and entering data.

The idea of creating a public database with key information of institutions and study programmes that educate journalists in Europe, enabling different types of information selection, has been greeted as the important and useful one. The map sustainability was emphasized since the main idea is to provide unlimited access to the data collection form, even when the project finishes. The challenges regarding gathering and entering data were then discussed.

Until mid-June, the first step is planned to be finished after which a call for those who are willing to participate in gathering and entering data will be announced. The notification about the collection data form availability will be released on time via the HEJDE website and Facebook page, TWG Journalism and Communication Education members network, etc.
