The WIMEA-ICT Project at Makerere University organised a media training for its researchers. It took place from June 18-19 2015 at the College of Computing and Information Sciences at Makerere University.
It was facilitated by Partick Luganda, a media trainer and consultant from Farmers Media Link.
He trained the researchers on how to package their research findings so that they are attractive for the media houses to pick and run in print and broadcast.
Over 19 participants registered for this training. Those who attended say they benefited a lot.
They were introduced to the media/journalism, and told about the headline relevance of the media to science-media relationship, meeting reporters, nurturing science-media relationship, tools (Help the media to help you) and the inside story of the Organisation.
