TED Studies, created in collaboration with Wiley, are curated video collections – supplemented by rich educational materials – for students, educators and self-guided learners. In Covering World News, media executives, journalists and authors explore how our ability to understand and participate in a global society is helped or hindered by Western media coverage of world events. As technology and a tough economy change the way mainstream media companies do business, will international news be an albatross or an asset? Relevant areas of interest, study and coursework include: journalism, photojournalism, citizen journalism, advocacy journalism, media studies, African studies and Middle East studies.
