SECTIONS

This course is designed for managing editors, executive editors, desk editors, social media editors—anyone in charge of directing coverage, commissioning stories, or packaging and producing them for public consumption. We will identify different types of AI stories and dissect what sets apart the best coverage, including its framing, headline, and artwork. You’ll learn how to assess both pitches and filed stories, and avoid common pitfalls that can mislead or confuse an audience (or an editor). There will be opportunities to ask questions, trade tips, and have a lively discussion among fellow newsroom decision-makers. View the course syllabus.

Join us for a 90 minute workshop for editors of all kinds as part of the Pulitzer Center's AI Spotlight Series. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, July 10 at 10:00am PKT, and is geared towards journalists in Middle East, Asia, and Pacific time zones. (What time is that in my city?)

Please note that these trainings will be conducted live in order to allow for interaction between attendees and coaches. A recording will not be shared with registrants afterwards (but registrants will receive resources!). If you are interested in attending the training, please show up online at the time specified. If this time does not work for you, please see our full list of upcoming trainings here
