Poynter is a school that exists to ensure that communities have access to excellent journalism—the kind of journalism that enables us to participate fully and effectively in our democracy. To that end, they teach those who manage, edit, produce, program, report, write, blog, photograph and design, whether they belong to news organizations or work as independent entrepreneurs. They teach those who teach, as well as students in middle school, high school and college—the journalists of tomorrow. And they teach members of the public, helping them to better understand how journalism is produced and how to tell for themselves whether it’s credible.
Poynter teaches management, ethical decision-making and the power of diversity; they teach editing, writing, reporting and new media skills; they teach those in broadcast, print and the Web; they teach those trying to remake their organizations and those trying to remake their journalistic skills set. Poynter teaching is unique. Guided by a resident faculty that includes distinguished professionals and scholars, their programs are designed to be highly interactive and give participants lots of individual attention. Teaching is both grounded in the extremely difficult realities of the marketplace and focused on the highest standards of journalistic values. Practical and aspirational, it is often referred to as the “Poynter Experience.”
