The Print and Online Media Management Master Class will cover the integration of online, print and multi-platform content; paid content, additional sources of revenues; business planning; newsroom management, including integrated newsrooms; news workflow management, handling social media and user-generated content as well as “Foreign Desk” management.
The Broadcast Management Master Class will cover news coverage planning; newsroom management, including integrated newsrooms; news deployment / breaking news, usage of multiple sources.
The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the two regions, in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies in the Neighbourhood regions, through the creation of a network of journalists. The OPEN Media Hub will provide skills to journalists and media managers through the fostering of professional networks, the provision of hands-on workshops, of journalist exchanges and support to audio-visual and online production.
