Beyond Conventional Reporting: join our workshop in Prague!

Registration is open until June 6, 2023.


Set to take place in Prague on June 14, 2023, the "Beyond Conventional Reporting: Cultivating Media Literacy and Tackling Disinformation with Innovative Journalism Practices" workshop is an exclusive opportunity for Czech journalists and journalism students. Organized within the framework of the SCIENCE+ project by Free Press Eastern Europe, this event promises an engaging and practical exploration of the modern journalistic landscape. The language of the workshop is Czech, with several speakers using English.


Our program focuses on four critical areas:

  1. Effective Fact-Checking and Reporting on Disinformation: Participants will learn how to debunk misinformation using the best practices and techniques tested in the Czech Republic.

  2. Media Literacy: Our expert trainers will guide participants towards a deeper understanding of the elements of media literacy and how to foster it in audiences through their reporting.

  3. Packaging and Delivering Fact-Checking and Debunking Content: Discover how to effectively present fact-checking content across various media types. Our approach is based on lessons derived from intensive regional experiments.

  4. AI Solutions: In the final part of the workshop, participants will delve into the world of AI-powered tools like ChatGPT and explore how they can assist in fact-checking and reporting.


By the end of the workshop, participants will leave with a deeper understanding of how to navigate the information disorder, combat disinformation, and enhance their audiences' media literacy.
