Abstract

PCF5 Sub-theme: Livelihoods // The focus of the paper will be a case study, based on preliminary results, on the effectiveness of a radio scriptwriting competition as a means of providing African broadcasters with training on how to create high quality radio programs on climate change strategies for farmers. The paper will detail how African broadcasters are increasingly accessing the Internet for information and learning opportunities and will also highlight how on-line or distance coaching can play a vital role in developing broadcasters’ scriptwriting skills so that they in turn can create radio programs that promote learning amongst their listeners. // Paper ID 469
