Anuradha Prasad, Chairperson - BAG films & President - Association of Radio Operators of India (AROI), shared her views on imparting knowledge to the students of journalism through practical training at the Media Educators Summit held on 22nd November.
Mrs. Prasad said, "Every human being needs to reinvent oneself with time and this is the most important aspect in the life of students and teachers. We live in a connected world and knowledge has to be passed on."
She further pointed out that the need of the hour is to ‘educate the students through practical training, not with the bookish knowledge’.
"When we are on the other side, we become consumers and we see how the consumer is taking it, how the story is being taken. We have to train them to write a story", she said.
Mrs. Prasad shared her experience, when she entered the field of journalism 20 years back, of going out at mid-night with cameras to get a breaking news. She said that we need to have an enterprise like that to match up with the pressure in the field of media today.
"Unless and until you have an enterprise and you match and catch up with the future; you will be redundant to move forward", she added.
She further said that teachers and professors need to explain the concept of 'surety', they need to engrain the concept of fake and real in the minds of students and with that direction 'we can get good future of journalism'.
