Attendees consistently rate its interactive sessions as 4.5, with 5 as highly effective and highly useful. Instructors are accomplished journalists with both frontline and teaching experience.
The 2019 sites were selected from applications by committees of local journalists. These successful committees will conduct an assessment of the needs in their newsrooms to determine which skills will be taught at their workshops.
