Twitter has recently partnered with the Mohammed Bin Rashid School for Communication (MBRSC) at the American University in Dubai (AUD) and the Internet Society Middle East to launch a series of undergraduate lectures focused on the Open Internet for the first time in the Middle East and North Africa region.

 

The partnership is in line with the platform’s global commitment to advocate for the Open Internet and to advance open norms for journalists in the digital age.

 

Elissa Ayoub, MBRSC’s Interim Associate Dean commented: “The AUD-Twitter exclusive collaboration aims at providing tailored educational training sessions to journalism students at MBRSC. Students will hone their journalistic digital and multimedia skills through learning and practicing various key areas in journalism such as media convergence, content production on Twitter, and how to Tweet right as a journalist among other topics.”
