A recent survey by the Poynter Institute shows that working journalists and journalism professors aren’t exactly on the same page when it comes to ranking the importance of multimedia and digital storytelling skills.

Poynter Institute Survey Reveals ‘Disconnect’ Between Journalists and Educators

Poynter’s survey, “The Core Skills for the Future of Journalism,” uncovered glaring differences regarding the importance that working journalists and journalism educators attach to multimedia skills, including AV editing, photography and graphic design. Overall, the survey showed that educators rank multimedia and digital storytelling skills as being much more important than journalism professionals. The survey asked professionals, educators and students to rate the importance of 37 key journalism skills and knowledge areas.

There was also a gap between pros and educators regarding the use of audio where only 38 percent of professionals said the skills needed to record and edit audio were important as compared to more than 70 percent of educators.
