NewsTrain programs are aimed at newsroom editors and managers, reporters, copy editors, visual journalists and online producers working on multiple platforms. College journalism educators and student journalists have found NewsTrain valuable. Public relations specialists and public information officers also have benefited.
NewsTrain workshops can include sessions on producing and editing multimedia content, organizational development and management, innovations in digital media, and other skills and knowledge needed at all levels of today’s news operations. Trainers at the one- or two-day workshops are experienced journalists and journalism professors.
Trainers' slides and handouts from NewsTrains in recent years are at the bottom of this post.
NewsTrain delivers training throughout the United States and Canada. A workshop begins when a committee of local journalism leaders requests a NewsTrain in their city. NewsTrain staff work with the host committee to plan and deliver a workshop tailored to the needs of local journalists. You can find more information on hosting a NewsTrain here.
NewsTrain's low tuition is made possible by generous contributions from donors, large and small. You can help by contributing here.
