Formatted abstract
The continuing stereotypical coverage of Indigenous affairs in the Australian
media suggests that journalists are still fi nding it diffi cult to
come to terms with more effective ways of reporting such issues. The
many hundreds of students who graduate from journalism programs
across Australia represent an opportunity to at least challenge the predominant
methods and strategies. But how prepared are journalism
graduates for working with Indigenous issues? This paper explores the
processes involved in an intensive reporting practice course held at the
University of Queensland mid-2009. The course aimed to raise journalism
students’ awareness of some of the issues involved as well as
enabling them to interact and work with personnel from the Brisbane
Indigenous media community, 98.9 FM, the National Indigenous Radio
Service, SBS and the ABC. The fi ndings suggest that such structured
programs have a signifi cant impact on changing students’ perceptions
of, and approaches to, their role as journalists.
