We’ve connected a team of Teaching Fellows from industry and academia to offer in-person training whenever possible. Our Teaching Fellows provide free workshops to connect journalists with the latest technology in newsrooms across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, North America, Latin America and parts of Asia. While we can’t be everywhere all the time, our lessons are always available online.
We work with a number of independent organizations to provide in-person training on our behalf, with each offering lessons based on their industry expertise and journalism experience. Our Training Network partners are already supporting journalists in many countries and regions including Argentina, Australia, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, the Middle East, the UK and the US.
The Google News Initiative supports fellowship programs which enable students of journalism and technology to spend their summer working at relevant news organizations across the world.
Students gain valuable experience and contacts while learning from industry experts.
