This pioneering project brings together students from 6 universities (Chennai, Beirut, Fresno, Coventry, Milwaukee, Stuttgart) to remotely produce stories through immersed e-journalism.
Students are paired off to produce stories based on each other’s locations using digital technology and social media.
Students will acquire knowledge in the area of cultural sensitivity, breaking stereotypes, inter-cultural communications.
They will develop abilities to communicate under challenging circumstances (different time-zones, technological challenges) and pick up key journalistic skills including interviewing, producing multi-media content and using cutting-edge technology.
Students will work in pairs conceptualising, researching and producing a multimedia story.
The stories will be compiled into a collection of stories that will be published online.
One-to-one networking, collaborating on social media platforms, critical reflection
GENII – a collection of multi-media stories produced for the project.
