Call for Trainers for Media Professionals in Moldova

Status: Closed

Organisation: Deutsche Welle Akademie

Deadline: 08/04/2024

Location: Online

The Deutsche Welle (DW) Akademie is announcing a call for trainers to design a series of hands-on workshops on AI applications in journalism, AI ethics, and AI and elections.

DW Akademie in Moldova supports its partner organization, the Moldova School of Journalism, to create a series of interactive AI workshops tailored for local media professionals. These workshops aim to equip journalists with a thorough understanding of AI basics, its application in newsrooms, and the potential gains, challenges and pitfalls associated with its use, particularly in the context of the upcoming elections.

The overarching objective of the project (2023-2025) is to bolster the Media and Journalism Education in Moldova by developing the Moldova School of Journalism to become an innovation center for quality journalism and thereby strengthen the quality of reporting by independent media professionals. This will be achieved through the qualification of local trainers, the development of curricula tailored to specific needs, and the delivery of high-quality journalism education programs addressing the most pressing issues facing the media community. In the previous year, two training programs on podcasting and video storytelling have been successfully developed and implemented in Moldova.
