Online Training Tool for the study of Media Accountability launched

The MediaAcT consortium presents another current deliverable: The Online Training Tool shall encourage journalism educators to teach courses on media accountability, and also shall enable students across Europe and beyond to interactive online studies of our subject. The Training Tool consists of material developed by the MediaAcT researches in all participating countries and bundles theoretical framework with the results of empirical research.

The Online Training Tool contains a full seminar of 14 presentations on media accountability and transparancy in Europe and beyond (including Q&A, further reading assingments, and multimedia elements) as well as a glossary with the most important key terms and a broad sample of national case studies to compare ethical problems and dilemmas from an international perspective.

The Online Training Tool is defined as a collection of material, which can be used individually by teachers and scholars.

You will find the Online Training Tool here
