Start researchpodcast Mijke Slot: ‘Do we click?’

Dr. Mijke Slot started a research project called: ‘Do we click?’ in which she researches the digital relationship between Dutch journalists and their audience. She will also release a monthly podcast on her research.

About the project:

The current relationship between journalists and their audiences is increasingly digitized and quantified, and technology has two faces here. On the one hand, technology enables innovation - by which journalists can serve their audiences better, and news consumers can have easier access to information. At the same time, technology has a darker side that should be analyzed more critically. Web metrics, for example, sometimes play a determining role in the choices that journalists make in their news production process, and algorithms can influence news users in their news selection. In the two-year research project ‘Do we have a click?’ Dr. Mijke Slot will explore this digital relationship between Dutch journalists and their audiences.

Every month, she will keep you up-to-date with the research progress, and her findings and observations along the way. In her podcast, she will always try to make a link between the academic world and professional practices, and provide recommendations for practitioners working in the field of media and journalism. The first episode ‘The click is dead’ was released on the 5th of January.
