TISS and The Communiqué initiative to provide development sector professionals a work-based, results-oriented skill-set in communication
Workshop on Writing Skills for Development Communicators; Biannual, to be held twice a year; The inaugural program will be held on 11 - 15 April, 2017
Development Communication is distinct from communication used by corporates and for-profit organizations. Whether it is advocacy, research communication, or fund-raising, the underlying principle in development communication is social good and sustainability which needs to be factored into all communication. This creates a whole new language, syntax, style, and outputs that are used only by this sector. The program will unpack development communication, and in the process provide participants with guidelines, frameworks, tips, and tools which could be put to use straightaway.
Learning is through a variety of interactive and participative techniques including exercises, worksheets, discussions, group work, and role play. The crux of the methodology used is an emphasis on learning through doing. These are supported with presentations on related theoretical frameworks.
