Pedro Coelho, Sandra Marinho

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


REC - Repórteres em Construção (Reporters Under Construction) is a collaborative learning project that aims to foster and support the training of journalism students in higher education institutions; to develop collaborative activities among Journalism) professors, students and journalists, and to foster creativity in journalism projects. In order to support journalism education, REC aims to establish itself as an intersectional platform that complements academic and professional education (without aiming to constitute an alternative to the formal educational offer). In this context, REC also tries to stimulate the creativity of future professionals and encourage original and innovative work, from a thematic perspective and in terms of new formats and languages: it is a place for "trial and error". REC therefore has no intention to present itself as a media outlet, although partnerships with the media are pursued. This project is focused on a specific news product: the news feature (investigative reports).
