0 1 2


The objective of this training is to raise local journalists’ awareness of the potential of the web both as a source and as a tool to spread information, and of the peculiarities of writing on the web. A debate on the new ethical issues that come with web-journalism is also planned.


Journalists are trained to sound recording, sound editing, photo and photo retouching on common software tools. With these skills, journalists are also shown how to produce an audio slideshow for their web reports.


Training comprises a great deal of practical exercises, aimed at the production of reports from A to Z : field reporting and investigation (notes writing, sound and photo recording), multimedia editing, upload on the web site and spreading/promotion on social networks.


The first training session took place from 31 May to 9 June at the Operational Media Centre in Bourdon, Port-au-Prince. Over a dozen journalists participated, coming from different Haitian media : Le Nouvelliste, Le Matin, Radio Métropole, HPN (Haïti Press Network), Alterpresse, Ticket Magazine, TNH (National Haitian Television), Radio Antilles, Radio Télé Zenity,

Thanks to all for your participation. A second session is planned in July.
