Journalists from Latin America and the United States covering immigration issues in their respective media are sought to apply for an online Spanish-language course in Immigration Reporting. The online course will take place from June 1 to June 19. The application deadline is May 20.
Administered by the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ), the online course aims to address important aspects of the immigration issue in the United States and Latin America, to train journalists about the most effective skills to cover this issue considering ethical sensitivities, language use, legal issues and the challenges journalists face at the border. In addition, all participants will be able to share their experiences related to reporting on immigration and discuss the best journalistic practices.
The course is free of charge, but the space is limited. Journalists are encouraged to apply soon.
At the end of the online course, the most outstanding student will be selected by ICFJ to participate in the Scripps Immigration Program event, which will take place in Washington, DC, from July 8 to 16, 2009.
