Linda Austin, project director for APME’s NewsTrain, is working to make training in digital journalism more accessible, and she needs your help.
By June 27, she asks that you please take three to five minutes to answer her survey about what you want to know about digital journalism and how you want to learn it.
You might even win $50.
This survey is the first step in her project as a 2017-18 Reynolds Journalism Institute Fellow at the University of Missouri. Her goal is to come up with the first course — of what will hopefully be many — that will lead journalists step-by-step through what they need to know in social, video, data and other digital skills.
She’s looking at teaching these digital skills to time-starved journalists by delivering bite-size lessons on smartphones.
By June 27, you can help her help you by responding to the survey and sharing this link – bit.ly/digijsurvey – with your colleagues to take it, too.
Participants will be entered in a drawing for $50 gift cards.
