[Commlist] Communications Education in the Digital Age - Call for Symposium Papers

Thu Nov 14 08:45:26 GMT 2019

7th International Communication Days will take place at Istanbul.

Faculty of Communication is hosting the seventh International Communication Days on 16 - 17 April 2020. This year’s symposium title is “Communications Education in the Digital Age”. The symposium series, attracting great interest both nationally and internationally, have been held annually since 2014 with themes such as digital addiction, digital culture and digital transformation.

The main title of this year’s international symposium is “Communications Education in the Digital Age”. In our age, digitalization has led to significant transformations in the media sector and it is inevitable that the educational institutions will develop an educational approach appropriate for this transformation. The accreditation processes initiated in the faculties of communication are indicative of efforts to adapt to the standards of excellence and requirements of the age in higher education institutions. It is important to update the curriculum which forms the basis of communications education in accordance with the requirements of digitalization. Furthermore, it is crucial to replan the educational tools, materials and techniques. It is significant both in terms of meeting the expectations of the sector and professional success of the students that the institutions providing communication education keep up with the times. All these require new approaches to be brought forward, discussed and planned in communications education

Symposium will last for two days and will comprise esteemed scholars from both Turkey and abroad including Prof. Erik Knudsen, Prof. Halil Nalçaoğlu, Prof. Maureen Ellis, Prof. Neira Cruz Xose Antonio and Assoc. Prof. Rocio Ovalle. In addition, as in the previous year, distinguished academics in the field will be moderating the sessions at the symposium.
