Kristian Strøbech

10: Nov 2013

Kristian Strøbech is a journalist and associate professor, specializing in digital and social media at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. He is one of the pioneers of digital journalism education in Denmark, having trained hundreds of BA students as well as mid-career level journalists in multimedia storytelling and online technologies since 2001.

In recent years Kristian has spearheaded research and development work at his J-school into journalism's place in social media. In his earlier career, he worked for a decade as an editor and foreign desk correspondent for Danish television broadcaster TV 2, covering stories and conflicts in the Balkans and across the African continent. He also served as Africa correspondent for TV 2, based in South Africa. Kristian lives with his family in the countryside outside of Aarhus, Denmark.

Kristian participated in the November 2013 MediaStorm Methodology Workshop. He had the following to say about his experience:

It is the rarest thing to meet someone who understands our industry and it's place in the digital age on such a deep level as Brian Storm does. Even rarer to meet someone at his level who is also unreservedly willing to share every bit of knowledge, tradecraft and experience carved out of a remarkable and still evolving career.

The workshop is packed with important knowledge of the kind that translates into action and collaboration, bringing us all forward.

Almost needless to say that Brian and his whole team apply the same uncompromising approach to teaching and workshopping as to master storytelling. If there was an Emmy or a Pulitzer in the teaching category, I would nominate them all without hesitation. If you get the opportunity, apply for this workshop.
