PJ: Participatory Journalism crowdsourcing tools and practices


    Participatory journalism and citizen reports occupy key positions in today’s news media environment, having become expected, regularized components of breaking and other forms of news as well as the topics of university projects and other types of training. Members of the audience are no longer consumers but participants in the news and information cycle.

    This course you will be able to explore opportunities and avenues to tap the power of others in reporting, packaging and sharing stories (crowd sourcing). Be it the print media, broadcasting or new media, there are opportunities for ordinary citizens to report on issues around them and through this, make media enterprises better in touch with the issues on the ground and those they serve while getting more content than they would under usual practice.


    The course looks at the benefits, risks and tools used in crowd sourced journalism and promoting participatory journalism. At the end of the course participants will set up initiatives towards engaging citizens in reporting and production of news and information

     Course Duration: One month (4 hours a day, 5 days a week, 3weeks of remote support)
