Journalism AI Academy for Small Newsrooms

The JournalismAI Academy for Small Newsrooms is offering a FREE online programme that offers a deep dive into the potential of artificial intelligence to journalists and media professionals from small newsrooms.

It is designed by the JournalismAI team at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and powered by the Google News Initiative.

The Academy has been a core programme of the JournalismAI initiative since 2021, training over 100 newsroom professionals from across the globe.

Following the success of the past three years, which included cohorts across the world and excellent feedback from participants, we are now pleased to announce the launch of a new Academy for Sub-Saharan Africa. We will be selecting 20 participants from the region.

The 8-week programme will start in September 2024. It is designed for journalists and media professionals from small news organisations (fewer than 50 employees).

Applications are now open, and the deadline to apply is Wednesday 24 July 2024, at 11:59 PM GMT.
