My media trainer: a self-instructional training of trainers program

This interactive, self-instructional programme and resource kit is designed to help media professionals to develop their training skills and techniques, thus enabling them to initiate and implement courses, workshops and seminars.

As a radio, television, Internet or print journalist, producer, writer or public relations specialist, you already have well-developed craft-skills and strong competencies in your own professional field. My Media Trainer will guide you in how to teach those skills to others, whether through formal classroom activities, in ‘on-the-job’ settings or during specialist workshops.

My Media Trainer is a self-instructional tool, which means that you can learn at your own pace and in your own location. Easy to follow prompts will enable you to pursue a logical learning sequence. By the end of the program, you will be able to identify the needs of adult learners, plan courses and implement successful, outcomes-based media training experiences.

Journalism instructors with experience working in developing countries or emerging democracies were then carefully selected from Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North and South America to write the syllabuses for seventeen core courses. The draft curricula was reviewed at a second experts’ consultative meeting at UNESCO in Paris, selecting a number of model syllabuses to qualify the document for formal presentation to the World Journalism Education Congress in June 2007 in Singapore.
