Then What?, a first-person account by veteran journalist and media trainer Carolyn Robinson of her experiences training broadcast journalists in Libya after the death of leader MoammarQaddafi. Her essay outlines how to structure training in chaotic post-conflict environments.

I chose my friend Carolyn Robinson, who's in Libya on assignment to train new journalists in a post-conflict situation. Carolyn has worked in television journalism since we both graduated from Kent State in 1986, and after working for CNN for many years, took off to work in Hong Kong for the handover, then went on to other countries, ending up in the Middle East for years now.

So in the writing, which I started doing on Feb 6, I mainly wanted to tell about my two strong women - Carolyn and Dalia.
2-10-12: I got Carolyn Robinson to write out all the places she's lived in the world, and I wrote all of that all over her dress. She also gave me a resume, and I wrote parts of that around her, in the background.
2-18-12: Today I skyped with Carolyn and caught up on her adventures in Tripoli, Libya. She sent me a video of candle lanterns floating over the city at night, at a big celebration of freedom there, the one year anniversary of the "Day of Revolt.

On Jan. 17 my friend Carolyn Robinson went to Libya to work in Tripoli and later Basara, for four months total. She's working with reporters for Al Hurrah (pronounced HER ah, which means Freedom) to teach them how to run a news station.

My next piece will be about two strong women working in the Arab Spring: my friend Carolyn and also Dalia Ziada.
