Strengthening Journalism Education in Georgia

With the support of the United States Embassy in Tbilisi, the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) is partnering with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the Arizona State University (ASU) to support media educators in Georgia as they strengthen journalism education in the country.

An intensive study tour will connect Georgian media instructors with their peers in the U.S. and engage them in a hands-on, practical understanding of the changing media landscape and its impact on journalism education. As a result, Georgian media educators will be equipped with the resources, skills, knowledge, and connections needed to strengthen their pedagogical approach and empower the next generation of Georgian journalists to advance a free and vibrant media.

About the Program:

ICFJ will organize a 12-month program consisting of the following activities:

  • A two-week study tour of international news organizations and prominent journalism schools in Washington, D.C. and Phoenix, Arizona for 10 Georgian media educators.
  • Expert-led trainings on digitally driven journalism trends and techniques.
  • U.S. faculty-led practical trainings and discussions on best practices of journalism education and curriculum design.
  • A five-day embed program for ASU faculty in Georgian universities.
  • A micro-grant program to support implementation of new methods, resources, and curricula updates to Georgian higher education institutions.
