Learn science journalism from the comfort of your home

The World Federation of Science Journalists has launched what is describes as "the world’s first online course in science journalism".

The WFSJ, working with the Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net), launched the new venture at “Science Journalism meets Science in Qatar,” hosted by the Aljazeera Network and Qatar Foundation from 3 to 9 February 2008.

The course itself consists of a series of eight modules, including interviewing, writing skills and "reporting on controversies". There are also some "self-teaching questions" and assignments for students.
