New textbook: Journalist trainee - by Gitte Gravengaard and LeneRimestad

The textbook Journalist trainee (Journalist i praktik) by Gitte Gravengaard and Lene Rimestad (2015) is a thorough introduction to the life of journalist trainees. The main themes are: How do socialisation processes take place in the media organisation? What is actually learning and feedback? How do trainees create ideas for news stories and how do they present their ideas to the editor? And what actually constitutes a good news story in the media organisation?
The book is based on a research project where the two researchers followed 12 journalist interns during their one year of internship in different Danish media organisations.
Connected to this book is a website for mentors in the media organisations and educators: praktikantvejleder.dk
