Kickstart your TikTok journalism career

With a billion monthly active users and two thirds of its users under the age of 30, TikTok is rapidly becoming a platform journalists can use to reach young and diverse audiences through low-lift videos that have a high return.

Led by Kassy Cho, a freelance journalist, producer and audience development strategist, this hands-on workshop will teach you how you can use TikTok as a journalist to create short, engaging and shareable videos. Over two weeks, you will learn the basics of TikTok as a platform, how to define a strategy and create videos that are both informative and engaging.

By the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Have an understanding of TikTok’s features, audience and algorithm
  • Define a mission and strategy 
  • Have knowledge of the various types of vertical video formats 
  • Create your own engaging short video

This course is suitable for journalists of all disciplines who are interested in reaching new audiences through emerging platforms and using social video to tell stories.

The course will take place over two live Zoom sessions on Monday 22 and Monday 29 November 2021.
