From time to time, the World Press Institute offers seminars on investigative reporting, transparency reporting and computer-assisted reporting for international journalists or teachers, often in their own countries.
Such seminars have been held in Minnesota, Argentina, Chile, China, Germany, Mexico, India, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
The seminars are free to those selected to participate. Candidates must be fluent in English, be full-time teachers with extensive professional journalism experience, or full-time professional journalists who also teach skills courses to students or who are responsible for training where they work.
Graduates return to use the content and teaching methods with professionals and students in their own countries. They are encouraged to hold their own seminars and even bring some of their U.S. training colleagues as speakers. This has happened in Peru, Chile and Uruguay.
Topics covered include such areas as ethics, dealing with sources, advanced web searching, and tools for computer-assisted reporting.
