As part of their strategic vision and belief that good journalism can make the world a better place, the Media Challenge Initiative (MCI) is set to hold a 3-day Mobile Newsroom training at KIU.
MCI will train Journalism students in mobile (smartphone) reporting, camera work, youth participatory radio reporting, and digital skills.
According to Antonio Kisembo the Head of Training at Media Challenge Initiative, the training will help journalism students acquire skills in mobile (smartphone) reporting, camera work, participatory radio reporting, and digital skills.
Kisembo added that these sessions will provide practical skills for the digital age, and the training will complement students’ journalism curriculum well to produce better-skilled graduates.
The training is scheduled on 25th to 27 August 2022 in the Iddi Basajjabalaba Memorial Library conference room. The training will prepare students for the Mega Inter-University Media Challenge dubbed the National Newsroom contest that will happen in October.
The MCI team is set to create a ‘Mini Mobile Newsroom’ that will provide the students with the chance to participate in live broadcast radio and television auditions in order to identify the best News Team.
Media Challenge Initiative is a youth-driven non-profit, building the next generation of journalists in Africa through training, mentorship and experiential peer-to-peer learning
All Journalism students are highly encouraged to attend
