In January 2019, the editorial volume "Quo Vadis Journalistenausbildung? Befunde und Konzepte für eine zeitgemäße Ausbildung” [Quo Vadis Journalism Education? Findings and Concepts for Contemporary Education] was published by Verlag Springer VS. The editors are Kathrin Konyen, deputy federal chairman of the German Journalists' Association, and Britta Gossel, research assistant at the media and communication management research group. Together, both had carried out an empirical study on journalism education in Germany from the point of view of young journalists. In the editorial volume, key findings of the study are presented and discussed by professors, trainers and practitioners. Prof. Dr. Beatrice Dernbach and Dr. Michael Harnischmacher reflect on perspectives of journalism education in Germany and internationally. Prof. Dr. Klaus-Dieter Altmeppen, Prof. Dr. Eva Nowak and Prof. Dr. Stephan Weichert discuss perspectives of higher education. Perspectives for practical training are being developed by Gudrun Bayer, Nikolaus von der Decken, Jörg Sadrozinski, Ramón García-Ziemsen and Yvonne Malak. This is complemented by ten portraits depicting everyday work and its requirements using the example of selected journalists. The aim of the editorial volume is to enrich the discussion about a future-oriented journalism education in Germany.
