Canadian journalism schools respond to TRC’s calls to action

CBC News interviewed UBC journalism professor Duncan McCue for an article on the role of journalism schools in teaching students about covering indigenous stories.

“We all know that the landscape is changing dramatically and that our students need to learn a huge variety of multimedia skills,” he said. “I would argue that [learning about Indigenous Peoples] is absolutely a critical tool for journalism students to have and know and understand how to operate in diverse communities.”

This discussion comes in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call to action for journalism schools.
