JoMeC Network

About this page

The JoMeC (Journalism-Media-Communication) Network is a trans-disciplinary group of Australian scholars from the Journalism, Communication Studies/Media Studies and Public Relations disciplines.The JoMeC Network has engaged extensively in the Australian higher-education sector to develop guiding Threshold Learning Outcome statements to support curriculum development and improvement. This web hub contains a summary of research that has been conducted about the knowledge, skills and applications expected of Bachelor-level graduates in JoMeC disciplines, with a specific focus on graduates in Journalism, Public Relations, and Communication and/or Media Studies. The Network seeks to be an ongoing forum in which Australian university scholars and other stakeholders in the JoMeC disciplines can canvass, reflect upon and collaborate around learning standards, curriculum reform, and other shared learning and teaching issues.
