Journalism Masterclass: Conducting Great Media Interviews

Career Guide - T J Walker

This journalism course is delivered primarily through spoken lecture. Because the skill you are learning is speaking related, it only makes sense that you learn through speaking.

Journalism-you can become a skilled media interviewer. Imagine yourself conducting interviews with news-makers, industry experts and colleagues and appearing confident and authoritative the whole time. Wouldn't it be nice to know how to look and sound your best and come across as a skilled interviewer anytime you have a chance to ask people questions on video or audio?

The skill you will learn in this class is not primarily theoretical or academic. It is a skill that requires physical habits. That is why you will be asked to take part in numerous exercises where you record yourself speaking on video, and then watching yourself. Learning presentation skills is like learning how to ride a bicycle. You simply have to do it numerous times and work past the wobbling and falling off parts until you get it right.
