By Benét J. Wilson, DJTF co-chair, Online Managing Editor-Business Aviation, Aviation Week Group

The National Association of Black Journalists’ Media Institute is holding a Webinar on Producing & Filing for the Web.   The Webinar will be held tomorrow, Wed. Feb. 3 from 12 noon to 1:00.  It will be moderated by Media Institute Chairman and WebbMedia teacher Doug Mitchell, with presenters Mike Wuebben, Senior Producer, CBSNEWS.COM and Whitney Dehart, Digital Journalist for CBS News.

Journalists today need to be multi-skilled and have a solid understanding of how to produce and write content across more than one distribution channel. We thought a look at the shifting landscape of multimedia journalism is in order and give NABJ members a chance to hear about it from those currently practicing the craft now.  To register or for more information, click here.

The deadline for NABJ’s call for proposals for this year’s annual conference is Feb. 6.  We will focus on everything from training journalists to become more digitally savvy, to discussing how to effectively use social media, and understanding sustainable journalism.   Click here for proposal guidelines and to submit your ideas.

And last — but not least — are you an NABJ member who happens to be a professor or teacher?  A new Yahoo listserv has been created just for you.  As the ones on the front lines who are teaching the next generation of journalists, it’s important that journalism professors have their own forum to share ideas and best practices.  If you’re interested in joining, click here.
