NewsTrain is a national touring workshop serving journalists in their own cities. Programs are designed to provide training in the skills, knowledge, and information newsroom leaders need in a rapidly changing media setting.
NewsTrain programs are aimed at all levels of newsroom editors and managers, reporters, copy editors, visual journalists, and online producers. College journalism educators and student journalists are also welcome and find NewsTrain programs valuable.
NewsTrain workshops are available anywhere. A workshop begins when potential hosts request a NewsTrain in their city. NewsTrain staff work with a host committee to plan and deliver a workshop tailored to the needs of local journalists.
NewsTrain programs can include sessions on planning and editing a variety of content, organizational development and management, innovations in digital media, and other skills and knowledge needed at all levels of today’s news operations.
