Journalism Workshops. Student Monitoring of Media
Media have become a part of our everyday life over the last years; we use them at work, at school and while taking a rest. Therefore, efforts have been undertaken to provide media education to school students and, what seems to be more effective, to university students. University level education in the field of social sciences have required new methods and tools. The analysis covers the journalism workshops which the author has conducted for 15 years as an academic course for the UAM Polish scholars (journalistic specialisation). Didactic issues and a faculty-based EU project are presented against the background of on-going changes, the Bologna system introduction and the importance of practical preparation based on practical trainings and apprenticeships. However, regardless of the new tools and work methods being required, the proven tasks include the formal and informal monitoring of media. As part of individual projects, students check the contents of newspapers, weekly magazines, radio and television broadcasts. The monitoring projects which have been completed guarantee good preparation for professional trainings and work at editorial staff offices.
