Journalism in Conflict Zones - Free Webinar

Wed, May 18, 2011 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

Cost: Free

Format: Webinar

Length: 30 minutes

Military personnel are highly trained to react in intense situations – but what about the journalists covering the story?

Athabasca University in Alberta has collaborated with the Department of National Defense to create a practicum course for journalism graduates and students interested in learning about reporting from a war zone in a mock-Kandahar site at CFB Wainwright.

The unique course offers participants a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience simulated conflict zones while receiving mentorship from experienced war correspondents.

Students participate in combat exercises in scenarios that change daily.

The webinar is free to attend and participants are encouraged to ask questions following the presentation.
