Journalism has been changing over time due to the technological development that has been witnessed in recent years which has disrupted ways of gathering information, processing it and disseminating to the audience.
The ever changing technology which is famously known as digital disruption has brought a knowledge gap among the journalists and communication professionals in the world including Tanzania in terms of skills that can fit in with the current market needs.
Currently, it is very rare to find a journalist or communication professional who possesses multiple skills such as data storytelling techniques, fact checking and multimedia storytelling in print, electronic and digital only media.
Such skills gaps led Nukta Africa Lab to develop training programs to meet the current market needs for journalists, media organisations and civil society organisations (CSOs) in Tanzania.
Nukta Africa is deeply committed to ensuring Tanzanian journalists and media institutions compete in the global market by training and mentoring them through up-to-date designed programs on narrative and impactful storytelling, fact checking, data journalism, data visualisation and advocacy storytelling for. Most of these courses are not readily available in the local colleges and universities in Tanzania.
The programs, which have been designed by Nukta Africa Lab in collaboration with other media development partners, are meant to equip journalists and communication professionals with recent digital and data skills that can help them and their organisations survive under this challenging time.
For journalists, media institutions and communication professionals who want to be ahead of others in the market, it is time to contact us for training and consultancy services on these unique emerging storytelling skills. Learning has never stopped in this digital world. Let’s grow together.
