Thinking on our feet

A common theme of Poynter’s chat Wednesday was about students being able to think on their feet.

But during the chat on  What Do College Journalism Students Need to Learn?” we didn’t get far on how to help them do that.

I’ve read that a factor in creativity is having knowledge that is both broad and deep. Guest speakers and team teaching are helping to build bridges among journalism, technology and business.

One caution I would make is against changing one mold, writing, for another. But reaching across disciplines could also work with other departments.

And multidisciplinary courses or programs might  be increased — such as by issues-oriented offerings with sociology, political science, public health and public administration.
