Online Workshop: Knight Prototype Fund-ed
TOW will explore new methods to train journalists and improve storytelling skills via self-guided (free) and instructor-led (fee) web-based course paths. Our educational materials will feature experienced pros sharing skills developed over decades and new producers revealing their discoveries, triumphs and challenges. TOW’s first release will be in August 2013.
Transom, a project of Atlantic Public Media, has extensive experience teaching the aesthetics and technologies of narrative storytelling through our Workshops and articles on transom.org. Transom Online Workshops will build upon this experience and corpus of knowledge to produce an online learning environment that explores new models for online courseware for journalism skill building.
To receive more information about all of our Workshops, please write to us at info[at]transom.org and we will add you to our Workshop email list.

And we are in excellent company: this round’s other Prototype Fund recipients are WBEZ, American Public Media, Raleigh Public Record, and PBS:
