Students can produce their own media content in the project "Ernährungsradar" (e.g. explainer video, interview) and thereby gain additional qualifications in the areas of nutrition and media. New media, blogs or social media are ever-present in professional and private life. Thus, the ability to process complex contents correctly and comprehensibly is an advanced professional core skill.
The project "Ernährungsradar" is a joint project of the University of Bayreuth, the Competence Center for Nutrition (KErn), and the Akademie für neue Medien. The objective of the project is to present scientifically sound information on nutrition which is both comprehensible and appealing, and act on the overwhelming presence of fake news in popular information sources. For interested parties a knowledge portal as an online platform provides a realiable source of information. The University of Bayreuth and the Akademie für Neue Medien are working together with students to create multimedia content to explain facts about nutrition in an evidence-based and understandable way and are being funded by the Oberfrankenstiftung.
