Can you help up-and-coming Dutch journalists to understand and use English sources?What will you be doing?English in all its forms — speaking, listening, reading and writing — is becoming increasingly important in Dutch journalism, especially when it comes to research. On the basis of your experience in journalism you will teach students to find, use, and analyse reliable English sources that they will consult for projects such as in-depth research assignments and interviews. You will also guide and support students who wish to work abroad to develop their English writing skills. Furthermore, you will provide feedback on their journalistic productions like articles, fact checks, videos, and audio projects.Students will not only learn about journalism and English, but they will also develop a broader understanding of the world around them. You will stimulate their interest in foreign affairs, in reporting on global issues within the Netherlands, and also in the possibility of becoming a foreign correspondent. Together with colleagues you will coordinate educational projects abroad. Occasionally you will also make holistic assessments of students’ journalistic competences.
