The objective of the course is to get knowledge and skills in foreign correspondence, as well as in reporting in a variety of formats and across multiple platforms, ultimately receiving a new, transformative experience as a cross-platform foreign correspondent. Another objective is to challenge students’ media literacy as they learn how not to manipulate as well as how not to be manipulated by their informants.

During a two-week simulation, guided by professionals and academics, students will report back to their home countries and to other international outlets on the Czech Republic and Central Europe, in a number of formats and across multiple platforms. Students will practice investigative, socio-culturally sensitive journalism, drawing on lessons and workshops delivered by scholars from Charles University, journalists, and other media professionals. They will have access to traditional and emerging technologies as they acquire hands-on experience in cross-platform journalism. The lecturers and professors will be readily available to answer questions, provide assistance, and consult with students about their projects.

The course is interdisciplinary and combines multiple learning methods, including lectures, workshops, round-table discussions, studio work, excursions and field work, work in groups, and presentations by the students themselves.

The final project will be a multimedia presentation by a small group of students, who will simulate the work of foreign correspondents. It is assumed that students will reflect in their presentations the knowledge they have gained during the “territorial” lectures and seminars. Special webpages will be created, where students will publish their output during the course.
