Workshops at Your Location
Workshops at your site typically run for a day or two. They are ideal for training groups or departments, small or large. The training can also include one-on-one coaching sessions. Poynter faculty are skilled facilitators, offering craft skills and leadership strategies you can use to motivate and inspire news staff or students to deliver top-quality work — even in today’s challenging environment. As part of the training, we can also come to you virtually.

Poynter’s e-learning project, News University www.newsu.org, works with individual organizations to develop custom Online Group Seminars and Webinars, focusing on specific training needs. The Poynter NewsU Certificate of Proficiency Program is designed to help editors, publishers and educators assess a participant’s understanding of the journalism industry’s essential skills and best practices. The program stretches training dollars and allows staffers and students to work as they have time, rather than on a set schedule, and utilizes some of NewsU’s self-directed courses. If you are interested in customized online training or certificates for your organization, please contact Vicki Krueger, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 727-821-9494.
