As part of the One World Media Student Programme, we have produced teaching resources aimed at UK-based higher education courses in journalism, documentary filmmaking, and other practical media disciplines, all concerning how to produce outstanding media coverage of the developing world. Some resources may be of direct use to students as well as lecturers/tutors.
The teaching resources can be accessed through our microsite. To access them, you need to register (this only takes a couple of minutes) and then wait for us to confirm your registration (we will do this as soon as we can).
The resources include:
- 10 Case Study Videos in which leading journalists and filmmakers discuss how they cover international stories
- Exercise guides for use with the videos
- 28 real-life dilemmas supplied by current professionals, which challenge students with key ethical issues
- Links to relevant research, websites and articles on how media covers the developing world
- Useful documents and templates for producing media on overseas stories
- A directory of topics, allowing you to find materials that relate to specific topics such as access, interviewing and safety.
The resources have been put together using input from 15 experienced media professionals, including Lindsey Hilsum (Channel 4 News), Sorious Samura (Insight News TV), Mike Thomson (BBC) and Hala Jaber (Sunday Times).
We also have the resources in a hard copy format. If you would like to inquire about these resource packs, please contact us.
One World Media Teaching Resources were funded by UKaid from the Department for International Development
As a charity, it's important for us to find out who is benefitting from our work - and it helps us improve our future activities. If you register as a lecturer or staff member, we may get in touch with you to find out how you intend to use the resources before granting you full access. In particular, if you are at a university that we haven't worked with before, we would like to explore how we might work together.
Students may also register to access the resources, provided we have already been in touch with their course tutor.
We regret that the resources are not freely available to universities outside the UK at this time. However, such universities can access them on a commercial basis - please contact us for more information.
