We’ll use Introduction to Reporting: Beat Basics for two modules this semester. You are encouraged to explore additional lessons in the course to better understand your beat and how to cover it. The self-directed course is free. You’ll need a free Poynter account and can “add” the course to your cart after that. The total will be $0.
Once you “buy” the course, it will go to a course summary. With the course content at the end. You can start with the course Introduction to get an overview of what will be covered and move on to Lesson One with the “Focus Your Coverage” link in the left-side menu or using the “Next Lesson” button at the bottom of the Introduction.
