“Our all-Ukrainian tour across universities has a long-term purpose – the preparation of the new generation of professionals in the sphere of journalism. We want to say big hanks to universities’ faculty and staff for the exciting and beneficial cooperation. I have no doubt it won’t be long that the fruit of this work will manifest itself,” said Ruslan Kucharchuk, Novomedia President.

The purpose of the tour was to train the new generation of internet journalists. In a number of universities Novomedia also covered the issues of television journalism and the fundamentals of an effective interview. The workshops were attended by students of all years of study and a wide range of programs, particularly Journalism, Mass Communications, Advertising, Public Relations, Publishing and Editing.

As Ruslan Kucharchuk mentioned, students were interested in effective ways to earn money through online media, in the basics of editorial work, copyright issues, employment in the media field. During an open discussion of effective interview aspects, future students raised questions about ethical standards, human values, and the general principles of interaction with interviewees.

In the framework of the tour, Novomedia presented its brand new study guide “The New Journalist”. The Association gave copies of the book to university libraries and respective departments; students also expressed interest in the study guide and bought a number of books.

The all-Ukrainian university tour was devoted to Novomedia 10th Anniversary. It took place in Ukraine’s most difficult times. However, this series of meetings with students in various regions proved that Ukraine is united, and that people in every region, particularly in academia, aspire for peace and cooperation.
