Pathways to the profession: a study in integrating journalism degree programs with the world of work
At QUT, the journalism program has developed a successful work integrated learning approach that integrates learning, teaching and assessment with the goal of providing student pathways into industry. This paper will outline the structure and approach of the program to clearly identify the reasons for its success, and also to outline the particular benefits that this program has for universities that run professional/vocational degree programs. In particular, it shows how it is possible to inculcate a ‘professional stance’ in programs dedicated to professional vocational outcomes.
