Critics, educators, and journalists have criticized and challenged whether journalism programs can adequately prepare and secure future graduates a job. On April 15, 2013, Tom Rosenstiel provided a framework in which journalism educators could teach both skills and critical thinking to help students understand the extent journalists’ behavior influences society while evolving technologically as well (http://bit.ly/16N4qtC). To best prepare students for the present media landscape, Rosenstiel argued that journalism curriculum should reflect four pillars: 1) the teaching of technological skills, 2) journalism responsibility, 3) the business side of journalism, and 4) the discipline of verification. One year later, each member of the panel including Tom Rosenstiel will address each individual component of Rosenstiel’s new curriculum, which includes how educators can make it happen within their present structure.
