Content research for CR

Content Research for CR

Institute of Development Studies, Sussex, UK in collaboration with OneWorld Foundation India organised a day long workshop on research for producing radio programmes using web-tools.

Content research is a significant step in the process of radio programme production. A well thought out and researched radio programme containing facts and figures can enhance the impact of programme.

This IDS-OneWorld workshop will provide a platform to the Community Radio Stations to discuss the different ways of conducting research on topics relevant for them.

Special focus will be on mining the existing content using knowledge platforms of IDS i.e. ELDIS and BRIDGE.

The workshop aims at enhancing thematic focus of radio programmes produced by CR stations by providing well-researched content.
