About the Workshop


The annual Journalism in the Digital Age Summer Workshop offers a week of hands-on media and news gathering instruction for high school students.

The Northern Kentucky University College of Informatics hosted the event in the summers of 2008-2010.  The workshop took a break in 2011 while the college moved to its new home in Griffin Hall, but returned in 2012. This marks the sixth year of our successful program reaching out to the journalists of the future.

NKU faculty and students, as well as media professionals, lead the workshop sessions on topics ranging from interviewing and video editing to news writing, photography, journalism ethics and law, and digital media.


The participants create photo slideshows, videos and text stories based on campus interviews, which are published on this website. And the NKU students document the week in daily blog, video, photo and social media posts on the web.

Support for previous workshops has been provided by the Scripps Howard Foundation, the Gannett Foundation, the NKU Office of Regional Stewardship and its University Community Partnership Grant Program, Learn and Serve America and the Trounstine Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation. This year’s workshop is funded as a joint effort of the NKU College of Informatics and the NKU Communication Department.
