Contribute to citizen journalism training

[Keyword: , , ]. There's a call for contributions on Dan Gillmor's citizen journalism blog after the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation announced the award of a grant to Gillmor's Center for Citizen Media "to create five online training modules for citizen journalists. Those modules will cover 1) thoroughness, 2) accuracy, 3) fairness, 4) transparency and 5) independence."

"The modules will be available initially on the Knight Foundation site and here, and will also be available under a Creative Commons license.

"We need your help," says Gillmor. "To that end, we’re creating discussion boards where we can have a conversation about the content and ideas behind these modules. Watch this space for more details."
