It’s just a good day for education-related news, apparently, because a bunch of information about classes for media folk starting up this fall just landed in our lap.
If you’re interested in any self-improvement/skills-building, check out these highlights:
- The Donald W. Reynolds Center for Business Journalism is offering free workshops in select cities as well as online training.
- In Dallas: Finding Fresh Angles on the Economy in Your Own Backyard, Sept, 21 2009. (The same program will run in New Orleans on Nov. 9.)
In New York City: Covering the 2009 Reregulation of America, Oct 5, 2009. Learn what new regulations might be coming and what local stories you should be covering both now and when the new rules hit. (A similar program will run in Chicago Oct. 16.)
In Los Angeles: Investigative Business Journalism Workshop.Detect red flags in financial documents. Oct 21, 2009
- For anyone, anywhere: The Reynolds center reprises Understanding Financial Statements, a week-long, one-hour-per-day webinar that teaches the basics of reading an income statement.
- The EFA has just released its fall catalog. You don’t need to be a member to take a class. Highlights include starting as a freelancer, dealing with nightmare clients, working as a freelance publicist, and essay writing.
- Obviously, we have some cool stuff coming up. Our popular Flash For Journalists is this weekend, and starting this Monday, you can learn (online!) how to write a killer nonfiction book proposal.
So go forth and learn!
