Learn what it takes to survive and thrive in the future of journalism in this two-day course.

The digital revolution is transforming the African journalism landscape, and news editors, managers and reporters are constantly being asked to adapt. How do we help our teams (and ourselves) to keep on top of the news in an ever-changing media environment? We need to understand where the profession is going, how it’s changing, and where we fit in. 

Become a news futurist, ready to take a leap into the unknown. Catch a glimpse of the newsroom of the future, and learn about how our jobs can and will change. Explore new platforms and get to grips with the tools and tech that are set to turn traditional newsroom processes on their head. Above all, get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to: 

  • Understand the changing role of journalism  
  • Explore new career paths and vital future skills 
  • Experiment with multiple revenue streams 
  • Understand your audience and innovate to meet their needs 
  • Build trust and connection in a digital world
