This pilot is inspired by an innovative multi-dimensional training workshop that was delivered to a group of journalists from Myanmar.
Exploring the Game Medium for Journalism Training
Learning and teaching the craft of journalism can be expensive and time-consuming. And in many locations, where there are contextual complexities, to equip journalists with the skills they need is both labour intensive and limited. This project aims to pilot the use of the game medium to transform, reinvigorate and extend the effectiveness of one of Internews’s core purposes: that of training journalists. In doing so, it is hoped that a game can be disseminated widely, enabling large numbers of journalists to learn in their own time and in their own space, through experiential game play.
