This is not the first time that the Journalism department has organised this kind of "Warm up" event to help prepare students for their future profession. In turn, they were able to question the Minister about subjects they had prepared in advance. They notably addressed the issue of distance education, teacher training and the financial and psychological challenges enciuntered by students. More specifically, they were eager to learn about their prospects for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The meeting had no rigid agenda, but there was a beginning, a middle and an end. The priority was not to listen, but to acquire skills. Nordine Nabili, president of the Journalism Masters programme

For Nordine Nabili, president of the Journalism Masters programme, the aim of this exercise is mainly to place the students in a situation where they are confronted with people and to get them to bolster their conficence in order to be able, in the future, to concentrate on the content of questions that they will have to ask their interlocutors. The closing phase of the exercise will consist of a debriefing of the event.
