'Where were you in September?'
Patching, Roger M. (2000) 'Where were you in September?'. In Journalism Education Association Annual Conference, December 5-8, Sunshine Coast, Queensland. (Unpublished)
Hundreds of journalism students from around the country had the opportunity last September to see some of the best at their craft working under the most trying conditions, while at the same time gain invaluable work experience. They volunteered to work in the various media centres at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. The author, who supervised students covering the sailing on Sydney Harbour for the Olympic News Service, evaluates the student Olympic experience in light of the popularity of sports reporting among journalism students.
