INDIANAPOLIS—Journalists’ tools are constantly evolving in this digital age, so the Society of Professional Journalists and the Facebook Journalisms Project are partnering to offer free training for digital storytelling.
As part of this new partnership, SPJ will train journalism professionals to teach Facebook tools to other journalists in newsrooms, classrooms, journalism institutions and conferences. This will include a “Train-the-Trainers” summit of March 5 and 6 in New York, with sessions focusing on tools for journalists that include Live, groups, insights and safety features.
The SPJ Training Program says it will offer these training sessions to as many journalists as possible. To request training for a newsroom or organization visit spj.org/facebook.asp. Some early training sessions will take place at select SPJ Regional Conferences in the spring.
