Workshops & Training

J-Lab hosts a panel discussion on the “do’s” and “don’ts” of community journalism.

J-lab’s 2010 ONA Pre-Conference Workshop covers how to fund entrepreneurial journalism, including a legal heads-up, how to build a news site from scratch and how to generate revenue for upkeep.

J-Lab reports on our successful Net-J initiative and teaches you how to build and participate in your own community journalism project.

This session examines lessons learned from five Networked Journalism pilot projects funded by J-Lab. These projects partnered mainstream news organizations with five hyperlocal sites each.
