Global partnership offers course on journalistic coverage of COVID-19 vaccine
29 March to 25 April
Journalists, communicators and fact-checkers from around the world will be able to take a specialized Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) entitled “Covering the COVID-19 Vaccine: what journalists need to know”
"My previous manager recommended that I do some writing course with the institution to refine my skills. I then did a bit of research on the organisation and the training offered.
Notwithstanding the efficient training coordinators and staff members that assisted me, I was given a discount on the basis that I was self-funding, definitely providing much needed relief. Creative Writing and Editing for Corporate Publications is the programme I registered for. The lecturers were extremely knowledgeable, subject matter experts that provided a clear-cut idea on current trends. The session was interactive and allowed us to share insights on what worked at different corporates, and the training material provided was practical and appropriate."
"The Institute for Advancement Journalism became my first choice due to its specialization on media courses and programmes and because of its use of people who have been long in the industry who are experienced trainers and facilitators. Their facilitation is not only theory based but practical, and they do not only follow the programme or course; they give more and one comes out of the programme or course skilled to practice even more."
IAJ provides valuable and relevant training opportunities. Technology is dynamic and it affects how jobs are done in all industries, especially in the media industry. IAJ plays a vital role in equipping journalists and media personalities with skills and knowledge for the new age work environment.
