The Media Development Center at Birzeit University concluded an interactive workshop for Media professors in the different Palestinian universities and colleges. The workshop discussed the methods of teaching two new courses that were developed by the Center in coordination with 24 academic partners and media institutions in both the West Bank and Gaza.

The Media Development Center have started working on the two courses: “Social Media and Gender”, and “Media Ethics” in 2015 in cooperation with Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.

The Coordinator of the Media Development Unit Saleh Masharqa said that this workshop aimed at finding means to enrich the teaching materials and find interactive and modern means for handing knowledge to students. He pointed out that at the end of the workshop the participants suggested to organize further trainings and assessment sessions to measure the success in teaching.

The coordinator announced that the center would hold another workshop next August to train professors on the new course “Media and Law”.
