No matter what kind of journalist you are, or what kind of beat you currently cover, we believe you will deal with climate change issues directly or indirectly for years to come.
Are you ready?
Welcome to a new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), “How to Cover the Climate Crisis — and Fight Disinformation,” organized by the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas and sponsored by Google News Initiative.
Students will learn about climate science and climate journalism, as well as efforts to fight disinformation that tries to undermine climate science. The course is led b y John Schwartz, a journalist who recently left The New York Times after 21 years of covering issues like climate change and who joined the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Journalism and Media as a professor.
Find more about the MOOC here, where you can also watch Schwartz’s promotional video, read the syllabus and more.
The MOOC will be presented simultaneously in three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese.
Like all Knight Center courses, “How to Cover the Climate Crisis — and Fight Disinformation,” is asynchronous, meaning you can complete the course activities on the days and at the times that best fit your schedule.
