Hi Everyone, I am one of the participants. I work for the Media & Training Centre for Health as a Projects Manager. My main area of specialization is Radio Production and Training. We work on a number of different media projects.Our main focus is community media. My responsibilities include training community radio stations on producing quality programs that will have an impact on their target audience. Depending on the project we working on, I am also responsible for developing what we call Producer's Guides for their radio programs, this would have objectives, outcomes, relevant facts about the particular theme as well as suggested guests they might bring in for interviews. I believe this workshop will bring flavour to what I do.
(: Welcome to WikiEducator, Busisiwe. It is nice to know that your specialisation is in the area of Radio Production and Training. Radio is an excellent low cost medium for instruction and training. Looking forward to your contributions. With best wishes --Ramesh 21:10, 10 May 2010)
