The Power of the Media – The Responsibility of Journalists

This is an educational tool for teachers of journalism, media and communication who want to raise the students’ competence on issues related to diversity, intercultural understanding, human rights and ethics. The manual will also be useful for practising journalists, editors, other media workers and students.

Participatory teaching methods are an essential part of the manual and are included in all 11 sessions. Such methods represent active, exploratory, exciting and inspiring forms of learning. In addition to lectures and in-depth articles, the sessions include:
  • descriptions of group work
  • exercises
  • energizers
  • assignments
  • links to external resources and films
This manual is the result of a long-term partnership between the departments of journalism education at universities in Norway, Russia and Sweden, as well as the Human Rights Academy, a Norwegian non-governmental organization.

This workshop was a perfect combination of theoretical and practical work, providing you with knowledge and experience. If I had to describe it in one word, I'd call it 'inspiring'

It was more than interesting, because tutors teach in the best way, they help you not to learn, they help you to feel and to understand the most important thing: we are unique but we are equal. I'm sure that now I'm much more qualified and I'm full of emotions and inspiration.
