The media scene and modern trends in journalism; on “the other side” of the screen; mobile journalist=one-man show; the internet as a source of information; a picture - thousand words. These were some of the topics of the one-week workshop organized by the Macedonian Institute for Media within the internship program on digital media production.
This year students from the universities of St. Cyril and Methodius and Mother Theresa participated in the one-week workshop led by prominent journalists, editors and media professionals. In the next three weeks the students will undergo training in several media outlets in the country.
The one-week workshop enabled the students to learn about the global trends in journalism and production of informative contents, as well as, to actually stand on “the other side” of the screen in the role of TV reporters.
During the workshop the students learned what the concept of "mobile journalism" means, upgraded their skills in searching and verifying information on the internet, and learned how to photograph properly.
The Macedonian Institute for Media organizes the program as part of the project “Promoting media information literacy and strengthening independent media in the Western Balkans”, which is implemented by Albany Associates from London in partnership with regional media development organizations in Western Balkan countries. The project is funded by the British Government.
