TAIPEI (TVBS News) — A group of media professionals participated in a "Crisis Reporting" workshop on March 22-23 to hone their skills for effective reporting in the wake of tragic events. 

During the two-day event, Dr. Erin Smith from the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma, Asia Pacific, and Professor Julia Hsu from the National Chengchi University College of Communication underscored the importance of being well-prepared for these challenging assignments.

 

Shataakshi Verma, a manager with Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and previously stationed in Afghanistan as a social worker and humanitarian policymaker, shared her experiences working in conflict zones. 

The RSF is currently discussing the possibility to establish the Asia Press Freedom Center in Taipei. Verma aims to learn how local media in Taiwan manage crises to collaborate on a comprehensive crisis plan supporting journalists in need.

Highlighting the critical role of media in crises, Verma stressed the importance of continuous news flow to prevent Taiwan from becoming isolated during emergencies.
 

Videographer Chai Yik-huei and reporter Cian Wei-ru from Hakka TV emphasized the workshop's value in preparing media professionals for crisis reporting. Chai noted the necessity of being prepared with protective gear and emergency supplies.

Cian pointed out the lack of organized resources for crisis reporting in Taiwan, underlining the need for heightened awareness and preparation.

Dimitri Bruyas from TVBS World Taiwan discussed the workshop's potential impact on participants' future careers, emphasizing the importance of team coordination in crisis response. He also highlighted the need for media professionals to balance rapid online reporting with acknowledging the personal impact of emergencies.

The workshops underscore the crucial role of journalists and first responders in delivering well-informed news during global uncertainties, emphasizing the need for resilience, self-care, and thorough preparation.
