Applications are open for the LSE JournalismAI Academy for Small Newsrooms 2023. The JournalismAI Academy for Small Newsrooms is a FREE online programme that offers a deep dive into the potential of artificial intelligence to journalists and media professionals from small newsrooms. It is designed by the JournalismAI team at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and powered by the Google News Initiative.
The Academy has been a core programme of the JournalismAI initiative since 2021, training 60 newsroom professionals from across the globe. Thanks to the experience of the past two years and the exceptional feedback they received from participants, they are now reopening the Academy for two cohorts:
The 8-week programme will start in June 2023. It is designed for journalists and media professionals from small news organisations (fewer than 50 employees). In line with JournalismAI’s mission to make the potential of AI more accessible for news organisations worldwide, the Academy aims to support small newsrooms that want to learn how AI can be used to enhance their journalism.
The programme combines a series of masterclasses given by experts working at the intersection of journalism and artificial intelligence with opportunities for discussion among participants. In addition to that, participants will be guided through the development of resources that can support their organisations’ AI-adoption journey during and after the programme.
Participants will leave the Academy with a practical understanding of the opportunities and challenges offered by AI technologies, examples of successful implementation, and the tools to set up an action plan to guide the development of AI projects in their news organisations.
Through engaging presentations and interactive workshops, the programme aims to empower participant’s professional development and enable their organisations to access AI adoption and implementation.
By the end of the programme participants will have:
In 2023, they are selecting 20 participants from Europe, Middle East and Africa (from GMT-1 to GMT+4) and 20 participants from the Asia-Pacific region (from GMT+5 to GMT+12).
