This year’s International Academy of Journalism Fellowship Program is a ten-month course called “Journalism in the Digital World.” The program starts on September 2, 2012. The course aims to attract professional journalists from countries where there is a shortage of this kind of training. Journalists begin with a three-week training program in Germany, followed by a four-month e-learning phase in their home country. They return to Germany for two more training courses over the following five months, interspersed with a home-based e-learning phase. A stipend is available to assist with travel costs and course fees.
Journalists must constantly build and update their skills in collecting, evaluating and publishing information. This is particularly true in the digital world. The course offers an opportunity to update technical skills and discuss current issues in media ethics. Participation in the program will develop Internet and investigative skills, and explore ethics, freedom, and responsibility in the media.
The application deadline is May 7, 2012. For more detailed information about the course, entry requirements, and the application/selection process, visit: http://www.intajour.com/Int.-Academy-of-Journalism/program/Program-description.html
