It’s been just over three months since we first opened the Photography for Photojournalism course on FEE Academy and it’s been great to see how many students (and teachers) from different parts of the world have signed up to give it a try!
“I really enjoyed doing this course because I learned how to take photos in a professional manner. I encourage other students to take this course as this will help them to learn new skills which is fun to do online and it's free of charge.” - Yasmin Micallef, YRE Malta Student
A big ‘Congratulations!’ from the YRE International Team to the first participants to successfully complete the course and receive their Young Photojournalist certificates; YRE Malta students, including Yasmin Micallef, Jasmine Geriwa and Hannah Mharam Mercieca and their teachers Beverley Micallef, Rebecca Ellul, Joseph Pavia, and Nadine Parnis from St. Margaret College, Cospicua Girls' Learning Support Centre! In particular, we’d like to acknowledge the time and effort put in by Ms. Beverley Micallef, who went through the course with her students and created some fantastic presentations to accompany parts of the course. These presentations will be made available in upcoming versions of the course. Lastly, a big thank you to everyone who has provided feedback for the photography course! It has been incredibly helpful in perfecting the course and making sure it runs smoothly.
As you can see from the images below, the highlight has been seeing students getting outside with their cameras and finding new angles from which to explore their environment! Not only that, but students also get a chance to submit an original photograph of theirs for the ‘Practice YRE Competition’ activity. It’s a chance to practice nailing that catchy title, writing a description and caption and sending a message! On the left is a great example from YRE Malta student Kezayah.
“During this course I enjoyed mostly doing the quizzes and learning about photography skills.” - Jasmine Geriwa, YRE Malta Student
As of today, almost 300 people have signed up to FEE Academy with most learners coming from the UK, New Zealand, Portugal and Malta and over 120 people have enrolled in the Photography for Photojournalism course from YRE. The current round of the photography course ends on April 30th, but don’t worry - we’ll be re-opening a new and improved version at the end of June!
Don’t want to wait until June to try a FEE Academy course? On May 5th we’re launching the brand-new course “Strategies to Advance Circular Economy”! To get started, create an account on FEE Academy.
