When news breaks, the process of discovering and verifying amateur footage is just the tip of the iceberg.

This workshop will demonstrate what underpins a successful infographic, from simple comparisons through maps and charts to diagrams, networks, processes and explanations. Tutor Lulu Pinney, a “freelance infographista” who previously worked at BBC News Online, will explain how to define your message and identify good material to work with, as well as the basic principles of visual design.

Learn how to put together a social media strategy that will get real results, whether the aim is to increase engagement, boost site traffic or make your content more easy to find. Led by Sue Llewellyn, this course is designed to get you thinking creatively about generating content your audiences will really want to engage with.
