A group of International Journalism students from the Department of Journalism recently participated in the international news project Global Campus Studio Live. They worked with peers from six overseas universities and virtually co-produced a series of online newscasts. 

 

These newscasts consisted of multiple shows put together by media students from around the globe, including Hong Kong, Canada, India, South Africa, the Netherlands, the US and the UK, under the theme “Let’s Talk Racism”. Different areas such as history and context; education work and media; current events and personal stories were addressed in the video news productions and broadcast via social media platforms.

 

Global Campus Studio Live is an international student media network initiated by Ryerson University in Canada in collaboration with overseas universities. It co-produces annual video productions with partners worldwide and provides students with the opportunity to participate in international storytelling practice.
