The Journalism and Media Studies Centre is co-organising the Institute for News Literacy Fellows in Asia again this year in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Hosted by the Faculty of Journalism and Communication at the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, part of Vietnam National University, from 13-15 December, the Institute consists of a series of news literacy workshops targeted at media educators and practitioners from Southeast Asian countries.

Applications from media practitioners and educators in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam are welcomed in particular.

Dr. Masato Kajimoto, JMSC Assistant Professor of Practice, will be the main instructor in the three-day workshop. It is a great networking opportunity for educators in the field of news literacy from around the region to discuss how to improve their pedagogy.

Places at the Institute are limited to 15 people and applicants will be selected according to their interests and potential contributions to the field.

Accommodation in the centre of HCM City, meals, teaching materials and transport around the city will be covered by the organisers. Attendees will only need to cover the cost of travelling to HCM City and back to their home country.

To apply to join the Institute, please fill out the online application form and follow instructions to upload your CV and passport copy.

The application deadline is 15 November 2018 and invitations will be sent to selected participants on a rolling basis.
