Campus Journalists to get One-year training on Digital Journalism

Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism [PTCIJ] plans to organise a programme to train campus journalists on data and digital journalism. The programme will be organised with the support of Ford Foundation.

This is a welcome development in view of the fact that journalists in tertiary institutions across the country will be trained on how to adapt to dynamics of journalism in a technologically driven era.

Programme Officer of PTCIJ, Mr. Deji Adekunle, made this known to the public on Tuesday in Abuja. He said this is a one-year programme that will cover campuses across the nation’s six-geographical regions.

This programme is what we need today in tertiary institutions to train, mentor and publish promising and talented campus journalists across the country and build them into a community that would spur bloggers, programmers, and other young Nigerians that will make impact in the contemporary world.
