We offer a variety of training programs in partnership with industry experts, academics and news organizations around the world.
We’ve recruited a team of Teaching Fellows from industry and academia because we try to offer in-person training whenever possible. Our Teaching Fellows provide workshops that connect journalists with the latest technology in newsrooms across Latin America, Europe 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 parts of Africa, Germany, Indonesia, the Middle East, the UK and the US.
