Short audio documentaries were produced during the workshop for the volunteers of Radio Hope, the radio station of the University of Iringa. Around 40 journalism students learnt the basics of radio work: recording and editing good quality sound, interviewing for radio and producing short audio documentaries.
The radio workshop was instructed by Ms. Pia Alanko, a journalism lecturer from the Turku University of Applied Sciences. The workshop was part of her teacher´s exchange.
The University of Iringa also hosted three exchange students from Turku University of Applied Sciences. Jenny Mäkinen, Nina-Maria Heinonen and Anni Pajari spent almost four months in Iringa studying journalism. They also assisted in teaching recording and editing sound at the radio workshop.
