MasterCraft Series - Canberra University - Digital News Report: Australia 2022 Key Findings

Join Professor Sora Park for a masterclass on the key findings of the Digital News Report: Australia 2022.

How is Covid-19 transforming the news industry? How do Australians feel about reporting on climate change? Are people avoiding the news on purpose amid the anxieties caused by the pandemic and other disasters? Do young people mainly get their news on Instagram and TikTok? These are some of the questions we ask in the Digital News Report: Australia 2022, a leading industry study of news consumption in Australia and worldwide. 

This session will provide insights into contemporary issues that are relevant to public communication including the declining trust in news, the proliferation of misinformation on digital platforms and the rapidly shifting news consumption habits.    

Professor Sora Park, the lead author of the report, will highlight the key findings from this year’s study, followed by a Q&A. 

The report is part of a long-running international survey coordinated by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University. The News and Media Research Centre at the University of Canberra is the Australian partner institute. This is the eighth annual report.
