    Ultimately [The Local: East Village] will be a better way of learning than a textbook or a classroom exercise." - Jay Rosen

    In this week’s 4MR podcast I do another special report for our “Beyond J-School” series, this time an in-depth discussion with NYU’s Jay Rosen, who has been taking a new approach to journalism education. Rosen told me more about his Studio20 program, using an arts metaphor, and its work in helping to launch the new hyper-local site for the East Village in conjunction with the New York Times.

    Listen to my entire interview with Jay Rosen, touching on student expectations, and the mistake of news organizations in not using J-schools as R&D labs in the past:
