The Poynter Institute, "A global leader in journalism"

You may be interested to learn there are resources available at the Poynter Institute that offer training. The following is from their website:

"Without effective, modern training opportunities journalists are doomed to become the candlestick makers of the 21st century. Training for the digital age is crucial, not only for the journalist, but for the future of journalism and an engaged, educated democracy."
Will Sullivan, University of Missouri

     "The Poynter Institute is the world's leading instructor, innovator, convener and resource for anyone who aspires to engage and inform citizens in 21st century democracies.
     In all we teach, in all we do, we act as a transformative bridge between journalism's core values and the technology-driven and audience-centered journalism of today. [emphasis added] Poynter's efforts and initiatives extend from the digital space to newsrooms and classrooms all over the world. We train reporters, broadcasters, documentarians, educators, teachers and writers looking for strategies, tips and tools to tell their stories better."
