More about Elvira
“I’m an educator – I enjoy assisting professionals in furthering their careers in the media world. I currently put this into practice during training courses offered at well-known organisations and institutes.
My training courses are mostly practical as I’m a firm believer in ‘learning by doing’. The topics I train in are: (citizen) journalism (basics of journalism, freelance journalism), digital journalism (or ‘online journalism’), digital storytelling, social media, multimedia and online publishing.
I’ve been lucky enough to meet course participants from all over the world and to train in different countries. This fits in well with my personal interest in empowering professional news outlets, journalists, NGOs and activists in developing countries, especially there where a free press is not the norm.”
