As a framework for exchanges between information and communication professionals and journalism students from Ivory Coast, the sub-region, and the rest of the world, the FEJI brought together more than 15 speakers-specialists, gathered this year around the theme of information disorder and the new challenges of media and information education.
INA dedicates an entire field to Journalism in its professional training offer. Journalists, communicators, and the technical professions accompanying them, regularly call on INA, in France and internationally, to develop their skills. They are greatly impacted by digital, especially in Africa: , due to, among others, the arrival of DTT, the consolidation of Media groups, the curation on social networks, etc.
INA and its Ivorian partner ISTC Polytechnique are using their respective expertise to open in Abidjan in November 2021 a certified training of Video Journalist in Global Media of 100 days, carried out at an intensive pace and based on a pedagogy focused on practice and field, including 1 month of internship in a company. This training will mainly welcome journalists from Ivory Coast and other countries in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as students ending their studies at the School of Journalism of ISTC Polytechnique.
INA is also very active alongside its partners in Ivory Coast to support them in the professionalization of the Cultural and Creative Industries sector. The Institute is therefore at their disposal to respond specifically to all their needs in terms of training or management of audiovisual heritage.
