After successfully launching three introductory courses specially crafted to help journalists tackle the challenges of mobile and multiplatform journalism and gain knowledge on financial literacy topics, Thomson Media announced the launch of two new free courses available on the Journalism Now platform.

E-courses cover the following segments:

  • News Writing: The Art of Storytelling

 This course is designed to teach you advanced storytelling techniques with advice from leading journalists. You will be shown different ways to tell a journalistic story and receive expert advice on reporting from the field.

  • AI in the newsroom: The ethical approach

In a fast-paced environment, AI has become a daily tool. Still, the audience expects the journalist to be precise, fair, and impartial. Adding AI to this equation can complicate things, so if you do not have the right policies in place, it can be at the expense of reputation, legal problems, and loss of trust. If you use AI or plan to use it, it is time to take the ethical approach.

The e-courses are free and available in all Western Balkans languages. All trainees who successfully finish the courses will receive Thomson certificates.
