Reporting: Hunting for Stories

€ 430,00


Product Description

Every city has got stories to tell, even yours. Stories are everywhere: in the streets, in the squares, in the markets, in the cafés, in hospitals, in churches, in the elegance of the city centres and in the bustling outskirts. Some of them inspire novels, films or songs. Others are the food that feeds the world of communications, embers ready to burst into news, interviews, profiles or articles and customs. Your time is now. Get out of your house and get on the trail of the most interesting stories you can track down in your town. You’ve got three months to try your hand at all of the main aspects of being a reporter in the 21st century. You will learn how to spot news, deal with your sources, elaborate texts and multimedia material and how to present your story to an audience. It’ll be a nonstop game hanging in the balance between classic journalism and technological innovation, between the global breath of modern society and the unique value of local context.

Classes start in January 2017 and last three months.


How does Classi-fy work?
You’ll have to follow a weekly timetable of appointments, which can be video lessons or notes to read. You’ll have deadlines to write and share your homework on Google Drive. You’ll read what your classmates write and you’ll be able to comment or receive feedback on what you write. You’ll be able to meet each other and talk about the lessons on the forum – ok, we already know you won’t only talk about that, but that’s part of the fun. Sometimes your teacher will post a video in which he publicly analyses the work of the class, but you’ll receive your personal evaluation in private.

What about the course timetable?
Classes start in January 2017 and last three months.

What are the technical skill necessary to take part to the course? Do I have to install a special program on my computer?
You’ll mainly work online, therefore all you need is the internet connection. We’ll use Google Drive to share documents.

What does it happen at the end of the course?
The class will come to Scuola Holden, in Turin, in order to attend the final lesson and collect your diploma. Eventually you’ll meet everyone and, if everything is right, you’ll have a beer together in Borgo Dora to celebrate.
