A Journalist's Education Never Ends: Opportunities for Continuation of the Learning Process Through Mid-Career.
De Mott, John
For many years, a considerable number of the more progressive colleges and universities in the United States have been involved in conducting inservice training institutes or similar programs for working journalists. One of the pioneers in professional development for newspeople is the American Press Institute, which conducts an annual series of journalism seminars and workshops. The American Newspaper Publishers Association, the National Newspaper Association, and the Washington Journalism Center, among others, also offer similar programs on topics of national interest for news reporters and editorial writers. The Investigative Reporters and Editors Association is another national organization that has entered the inservice field recently, conducting seminars on investigative journalism. Newspaper associations also have established press institutes in cooperation with schools of journalism in several states. In addition to these programs, numerous special programs of individualized study and research are available to journalists, some offering financial assistance, or an opportunity to pursue a special interest. The Neiman Fellowships program is one such program. Other opportunities for continuing journalism education include "one-shot" seminars and workshops held around the country. Inservice programs will likely increase, as more and more schools of journalism, professional associations, news media organizations, and broadcasting companies become increasingly involved with such activities.
