Novi Sad School of Journalism implemented a project called “Day in your shoes”, designed so that the joint education, training and media production for journalism students and students with disabilities, improve the process of media production, emphasizing people with disabilities and their active presence in the media sphere. This way, we will achieve disability sensitization and raise social awareness about the needs and problems that youth with disabilities are faced with.
In the first, educational implementation phase, students acquired theoretical and practical knowledge about the proper and ethical news reporting, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary for the representation and self-representation in traditional and new media. In the second phase, 5 TV reports were created and broadcasted on local TV stations. Participants of the training were students of Journalism from the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad and Niš, as well as students with disabilities from the University of Novi Sad.
