IPDC project priority: Human Resource Development
This project was conceived as a result of the difficulties faced by producers in the Andean region, who lack the means to compete with programming imported from industrialized countries.
Implemented over the period 1991-1994.
The present appraisal relates to Phase II of the project, which aimed to equip the JMCD (Journalism and Mass Communication Department) of Yarmouk University with facilities for modern radio and television production, to produce programmes which meet Jordan's development needs in setting-up local radio and television services for the Irbid community, and improving the quality of training so as to widen the prospects offered to media professionals in Jordan.
The aim of this project was to train specialist communication educators, media professionals and sociocultural coordinators in the design, fine-tuning and evaluation of models for teaching and learning materials in the media education field.
