The course should incorporate the routines and conditions of professional simulation and real-world skills, creating mechanisms as close as possible to situations that the future journalists will find later. For instance, making products that will be disseminated through the public space.
The project-based learning method focuses on a task that goes beyond the classroom. Students must prepare a feature, interview, etc. for the media they are presently working on based on the requirements of the external media where it will be published: choice of topics, approach and execution. The timeframes are set since the beginning of the course, therefore, students work on longer deadlines, compared to their “brother” media where they are going to publish. News pieces, features etc. are produced, re-written, corrected and finally sent to the corresponding external media for publishing.
