HiOA’s first year journalism students have just finished this year´s online Rig on press freedom.The Rig is a multimedia workshop, created and carried out by MEKK members Elsebeth Frey and Solveig Steien, where students produce online stories about the current state of press freedom in different countries around the world. This year they examined Ethiopia, Egypt, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Colombia, USA and Poland.
The aim of the Rig is to enable students to grasp the meaning and significance of press freedom, while at the same time acquiring journalistic skills. Read more in Norwegian about the Rig and why we use this pedagogical tool at Department of Journalism and Media Studies at HiOA here.
