  • Media Training - Kazakh

    This manual has been adapted from the International Center for Journalists’ operational handbook and has been used by our trainers for more than a decade. It pulls together long-proven methods of training adults in general, professional journalists and managers in particular, and international journalists and managers especially. It comes from lessons learned (sometimes the hard way) in more than 20 years of training by the Center, its staff, and its hundreds of adjunct faculty and consultants who have made a science out of imparting information and skills to others.

What follows is written in the hopeful belief that if publishers in emerging democracies...

  • Reporting Immigration - Spanish

    Covering immigration is not easy. It often requires an understanding of public policy and immigration law, an appreciation of U.S. history and our social dynamics, and an ability to convey in a compelling, even-handed way the everyday stories of immigrants.

It truly helps to cover the...
