International Course Broadcast Journalism : Migration (Feb 5 - Apr 27 2007)
Start Date : February 05, 2007
Location : Hilversum, The Netherlands
Event Details :
This course is designed to strengthen the skills of professional journalists reporting on the causes and effects of migration. It will address representation of migration issues in both broadcast and new media, and participants will be actively involved in creating an internet site focused on the subject of migration.
The course will focus on telling the stories of both refugees and voluntary migrants. The scope will be global, and will cover representation of stories of both success and failure. Participants will discuss how these representations influence both public opinion and expectations.
Participants will concentrate on either radio or television, but there will be significant crossover and interaction between the two groups. All participants will be exposed to the following topics :
knowledge and practice of broadcast news and current affairs
multi-skilling in broadcast news and current affairs
introduction to and use of digital technology and new media in broadcast journalism
the (potential) impact of new media and new technologies on broadcast journalism
Registration Details :
