The Norwegian Institute of Journalism is a knowledge and
resource center for media practitioners.
Our mission and activities include:
* Training and further education of journalists and editors.
* Publishing of text books on media.
* Consulting for media organizations.
Our staff of teachers, together with external lecturers, covers a wide field of
journalistic competencies: press law and ethics; digital research and computer
assisted reporting; new media and convergence; language; writing skills; photo
and layout; newsroom management and editorial coaching; evaluation and quality
measurement; audience development and media trends.
We work closely with several other media organizations, such as SKUP (Network for Norwegian Investigative Journalists) and Ethical Journalism Network.
We also offer training and workshops for Arab journalists in
cooperation with the Jordan Media Institute and the Arabic Reporters for Investigative Journalism.
The Institute was founded in 1975 by the country's principal media
associations: The Norwegian Union of Journalists, (Norsk Journalistlag); The
Association of Norwegian Editors (Norsk Redaktørforening ) and The Norwegian
Newspaper Publisher's Association (Mediebedriftenes Landsforening).
The Institute is centrally located in Fredrikstad, 90 kilometers south of Oslo
on the eastern side of the Oslo fjord. The Institute has a staff of 10
and is headed by Eivind Andres Lid.
