This blog focuses on journalism, teaching and learning, and journalism education — with a focus on higher education (ie at university level). These themes reflect my work as a senior lecturer in journalism at City University London, and my research interests in these areas, including the scholarship of teaching and learning of journalism.
No doubt some of my posts will also cover other related things that I find of interest!
I am Jonathan Hewett, Director of Interactive and Newspaper Journalism in the Department of Journalism at City University, London. I run two postgraduate programmes there: the MA Interactive Journalism and the MA Newspaper Journalism.
Previously I worked as a journalist, further education tutor, policy analyst, and (even longer ago) as a teacher of English to reluctant pupils in Germany. After moving into higher education, I completed an MA in Academic Practice, and my research interests include social media, assessment, active learning, web 2.0, elearning, quality, and student support.
