Content

This is an intensive experiential program designed to capitalise on principles of adult learning.  Students participate in a series of interactions designed to reproduce the dynamics of communication within organisations as well as communication between the organisation and its environment.  The intensive residential program addresses interaction of individuals, groups, and larger social units.  Topics addressed include handling of media crises, understanding the importance of interpersonal communication and storytelling, and negotiation and mediation skills.  Students learn by dealing with problem situations and by reflecting on their performance.  Concepts and techniques are provided through appropriate readings, situational practice, and extended exposure to communication and media professionals.
