New News, a three-day series of panel discussions and events at the Wheeler Centre featuring senior industry professionals, was this year sponsored by Swinburne Journalism.

Organised by our partner, the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Advancing Journalism, New News tackled some of the major issues facing our industry and looked at ways of managing the challenges ahead.

Panel topics included breaking into journalism, building a social media profile, new start-ups, the art of the interview and the wisdom of experienced journalists. The keynote address was given by ABC managing director Mark Scott. Swinburne Journalism program director Associate Professor Andrew Dodd spoke on several panels and other staff and students attended and participated in the questioning.
