Starting from August 2nd , International Summer School for Bloggers and Civic Journalists takes place at Sumy State University. 24 participants from Sumy, Kharkiv, and Konotop consider such questions as blogging, where to find themes for the journalist, how to shoot and edit photos, the rules of a shooting, video editing in Adobe Premiere. 

“Interlink Academy” (Hamburg, Germany) is an organizer of the 10 days workshop. The programme of the Summer School is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

Tamara Nels, coordinator of “Interlink Academy”, says that the main point of the project is to give the participants more information from different points of views concerning the above mentioned themes – photo, video, digital security, investigative journalism. Also, the aim of the project is to make the participants become active journalists who create their own journalistic societies, find out interesting themes; to teach the participants how quickly, promptly and with a high quality to present news, to write a good article, and post it then.

“We found out many interesting things during the last 3 days thanks to life stimulation games, for example, thanks to “Chinese whispers”. Someone doesn’t like it. But, I think that it really shows how information can be created, passing several sources. That is why it is necessary to look up to the primary source,” – said the participant of the School Serhii Karavan, Konotop blogger.

“Firstly, student inclusive development is very important for a medical care student. Secondly, why not? Medical care is a specialty; journalism and blogging are for my own pleasure and self-development in general,” – said Anna Harbuz, Kharkiv National Medical University student, motivating her participation.

International Summer School for Bloggers and Civic Journalists will last till August 11th , 2017.
