This week I’m participating in the Knight Digital Media Center’s Independent Journalist Workshop at UC Berkeley. My class is the second ever. I am the only science journalist; others are community news reporters. Highly capable instructors pack our days with all digital training from every angle–tools and strategies that will move my work from print to the digital age. My capstone project is to develop my blog about the sense of smell into an engaging, creative online community. It’s an amazing group of people from whom I learn so much. Thanks, KDMC!
