Measuring media development

Fackson and I presented our report on research instruments for media assessment, during a panel at the Global Forum for Media Development. And encountered a lively audience.

The report is online on the GFMD website.

We argued that existing tools being used to assess media landscapes can do well to be more explicit about what their values are, what they mean by "media", and what they mean by development.

Report out on Gtn gathering of African j-schools

Colleague Sim Kyazze and I sweated to finish a report on the Grahamstown gathering of 19 African J-schools earlier this year. The intention of the meeting was to initiate momentum and partnerships for the participants to move closer towards the 42 criteria that define excellence in an African j-school. UNESCO, who sponsored the get-together are happy with the report, and have now released it.
