I & EAR skills training programme

for full details about the programme click here

“I & EAR” is a mobile training programme & adaptable educational service based on a methodology of listening developed through a creative practice by Claudia Wegener (a.k.a. radio continental drift). It assists conceptual development of communication & conversation practices through acoustic education & production. The programme encourages self-development through a focus on skills training for content production; and offers opportunities of empowerment through the training of trainers.

The programme is based on the proposition that audio media combined with a creative use of ICTs & oral history can be a means of community making & development, and that communities can be the agents of media development. “I & EAR” strives to contribute to a wider recognition of media as a collective, social, creative & historical production by offering a skills-training programme for its practical realization.

The programme can be called upon & hired by community centers, activist organizations or initiatives, arts & cultural centers or projects, libraries, museums, archives, broadcasters, university research centers, media schools or art colleges, development organizations & peace initiatives, to name just a few.

What could be a minimum set of tools & skills to become an "active" listener and a media producer?

“With the I&EAR programme, I offer bringing my experience & expertise to bear on a collective effort – often these are outreach initiatives – of a group or organization aiming to develop practical modules or projects in which mutual communication can thrive in a productive exchange & collective productions;” states the facilitator Claudia Wegener.
