The Rozana Media Development Center (RMD) participated in training journalists from the Middle East and North Africa to hone their skills in digital journalism, the most important of which are methods of information verification, storytelling tools, digital security for journalists, methods of public engagement and other topics that contribute to the development of journalistic work.

 

This training program was held in cooperation with the International Centre for Journalists (ICFJ) and its Social Media Solutions Program. The ICFJ and the Facebook Journalism Project launched a series of training webinars in Arabic on video and mobile journalism over a period of six weeks, from 12 November to December 2020.

 

After the first webinar held on 12 November as part of the ICFJ training sessions, initiated by the trainer at the Rozana Media Development Center (RMD) Journalist Mais Katt, who provided guidelines and instructions for journalists on how to use mobile phones in the production of journalistic content, the ICFJ organised on Thursday the second webinar, which lasted for two hours on 19 November and witnessed the  participation of 370 male and female journalists from the Middle East and North Africa.

 

During the second webinar, Egyptian journalist Mustafa Darwish detailed the advantages of using mobile phone in news reporting, including the low cost of equipment compared to expensive professional cameras and the expenses of hiring a camera crew, in addition to the quality of  mobile phones’ cameras, the convenience of filming and moving to different locations, which also helps protect the journalist, in addition to the quick access to live broadcasting and sending materials via smartphones.

 

In the fourth session, Mustafa Darwish provided practical advice on mobile journalism and information on the tools used to produce news reports using the mobile phone, while stressing the importance of paying attention to the sound quality when preparing reports using a mobile phone and recommended using an external microphone to record the audio.

 

The fifth session, facilitated by journalist Sarah Hoteit on 16 December, was attended by 295 journalists from all over the world, during which she spoke about the process of producing and editing videos using mobile phones.

The sixth and final session, entitled Social Media Platforms Solutions, was held on Thursday 17 December with the participation of 269 journalists and activists around the globe.

The training was delivered by journalist and media expert Sarah Hoteit, who started by talking about the importance of live broadcasting, pointing out that the Covid 19 pandemic crisis has led to a significant increase in the use of live broadcasts.

Hoteit also noted that the importance and attractiveness of live broadcasting emanate from its “immediate and instantaneous” aspects, as there is a growing interest in knowing what is happening during a particular moment, in addition to the fact that the spontaneity of live broadcasting is one of the factors that attract the public.

Hoteit added that interacting with the audience during these live videos increases its popularity and creates a bond between the person appearing in the video and the audience, explaining that planning the broadcast is very important, despite the fact that spontaneity is one of its defining features.

These training sessions are held remotely, as an extension of the training of journalists in the Middle East and North Africa within the “Social Media Platforms Solutions” program, which was launched in partnership with the Facebook Journalism Project and in cooperation with the Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum held by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and the International Journalists’ Network (IJNet).

Rozana Media Foundation has signed  a memorandum of understanding with the Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism (ARIJ) on establishing professional cooperation and publishing of joint investigative work, in addition to developing cooperative coordination in the field of training, research and networking.

 

This step came to reinforce the Foundation’s goal of supporting investigative journalism, as Rozana has participated in Syria in-Depth project funded by the Guardian Foundation and the International Media Support Corporation (IMS) over a period of three years. The Foundation is also working in partnership with the Syrian Investigative Reporting for Accountability Journalism (SIRAJ) in the production of investigative projects and podcasts.

 

Rozana was the only Syrian media outlet to participate in the Panama investigations/ papers, along with more than 100 partners and other media outlets around the world, to collect and search for leaked documents that revealed prominent corruption files involving politicians and states’ leaders, in addition to taking part in the investigations of the “Russian Laundromat” and “European weapons” along with Arab and international media institutions.

 

ARIJ is the first media network in the Arab world to pioneer investigative journalism in the Arab region following a modernist and professional approach.

 

Rozana Media Foundation started in the French capital Paris mid-July 2013, to open later in 2014 a program studio in the Turkish city of Gaziantep in 2014.

 

Since its inception, the Foundation has launched a radio station that broadcasts programs online via its website and Smartphone application, as well as FM waves in Turkey and northern Syria.

 

Rozana presents an important set of investigations and journalistic reports on its official website and social media platforms, in parallel with providing in-depth and entertaining topics both in its programs that interest and affect the Syrian society, in addition to covering aspects of life in Syria with high sense of objectivity and professionalism, away from any political or religious agendas.

 

Rozana focuses while preparing its programs on the Syrian citizens, at homeland and abroad, primarily on the social level and the changes that have occurred in the Syrians’ lives in general, whether at home or in the different countries of asylum.

 

Rozana established its training centre (RMD) in 2018, whereby it works to qualify trainers and cooperate with them to train a large number of Syrian journalists and citizen journalists.

 

The Foundation has been working recently on a “training project targeting media institutions in Yemen” focused on training four Yemeni radio stations, in order to produce humanitarian and community content that gives priority to civilians and allows them to express themselves, interact and benefit from various media platforms in improving their daily living conditions and create a better future for themselves.

 

ARIJ is the first network in the Arab region dedicated to instilling investigative journalism in Arab media in accordance with an advanced and new methodology in newsrooms.

 

ARIJ’s mission is to raise the standards of investigative journalism, as an essential component of free societies based on documenting facts and conducting in-depth investigations to search for facts from multiple sources.

 

ARIJ has been a guarantor of transparency, accountability and provided a platform for a diversity of views and perspectives over the last decade.
