The field of media and communications is changing, making it a challenging time for both students and professionals.
“The Future of Media” is the topic of the Press Club of Toledo’s next professional development event Friday, Sept. 27, at 9 a.m. at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, 325 Michigan St.
Dr. Jackie Layng, UT professor of communication and faculty adviser for UT:10 News, is among the panel of experts, which also will feature Kurt Franck from The Blade, Danielle Gamble from The Independent Collegian, Alex Alusheff and Robert William Bortel from Bowling Green State University, and Jeff Cole from Dana Holding Corp.
Some of the areas of discussion will include how reporting is changing with evolving technology and the tension between immediacy and conventional fact-checking. The panel also will address what skills students and professionals should work on going into the next era of communications.
The event is free for students with IDs and $10 for other attendees.
