TOL runs a variety of programs in post-communist Europe and Central Asia that include workshops, distance learning, and internships – with two main aims: to offer practical journalism training, and to help participants either improve existing media outlets or set up new ones.
Transitions, a Prague-based media training organization, is looking for motivated journalists to participate in an intensive, one-month, online program, scheduled to take place from mid-March to mid-April. This course is designed to provide participants with all the skills they need to know to write effectively on one of the most important challenges facing the education sector: privatization.
TOL's open courses attract participants from all over the world. We specialize in practical training, working with an international team of respected reporters, editors and new media experts.
A special TOL Foreign Correspondent Course: Tales of Transition
Picture it: 1989, after nearly 30 years of separation, Berlin’s streets are beckoning for change — lasting change. Leaders across the region are cornered by citizens demanding a new direction. Slowly, fresh ideals and hopes surface, regimes crumble, new ones emerge, and people are left wanting more.
Join us this winter in Prague for this special course, where you will critically examine and document this milestone anniversary, 25 years of post-communist transition in Europe. Practice the art of reporting. Be a part of the story telling.
A great introduction to international multimedia reporting, this course teaches participants how to carve out a place in a changing, but still fascinating profession and make it work financially.

Trainees will be exposed to print, radio, web, and TV reporting as course faculty offer their tips for using these various media when reporting from foreign lands.
From conflict zones, to mass demonstrations, to elections, to seemingly bizarre and random events, foreign correspondents are working tirelessly around the globe to inform you about everything going on—both inside and outside your world.
