AFP launches new digital investigation course for journalists on election coverage

Agence France-Presse (AFP) is launching a new online course in digital investigation and fact-checking designed to train journalists and journalism students to navigate the growing challenges of disinformation surrounding elections throughout the world. AFP’s open-access training, developed by the award-winning AFP Fact Check team, and supported by the Google News Initiative, is divided into two one hour sessions, with completed courses leading to two certificates. The first part focuses on the lead up to elections, while the second part prepares journalists for election day and the weeks that follow. The course will be available on the digital courses platform in four languages; English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
