On June 23rd, a new educational web-platform will be launched, and everyone will be able to join, for free, the course “Standards of Western Journalism”. This course was created especially for Central Asian journalists, who want to collaborate with Western media and improve their professional skills and abilities.
The course consists of 7 lessons. Every lesson has a quiz section.
The five students who get the highest marks before July 5th will be selected for a online practise session. This section will take place from 8-12 July. During the practise, 5 students will work on pitching and writing stories under the supervision of the Western Editor-in-Chief. Their work will be reviewed. Edited stories will be published on NewEurasia.net.
The theeoretical part is available in Russian, Uzbek and Tajik languages.
Practise – English only.
