The coronavirus pandemic is stretching journalists and newsrooms in unprecedented fashion. To help, News University will make Poynter experts available for live, 30-minute Q&A video sessions covering the topics you need help with now.

These On Poynt e-learning sessions are designed to deliver practical tips that you can immediately bring to your reporting and coverage. We’ll explore topics including ethical decision-making, managing through crises, ensuring diversity in coverage, successfully managing remote teams and sorting through the mountains of data. Let us know which Poynter expert you want to hear from and which topics are of most interest.
