We will be holding our next news:rewired digital journalism conference on Thursday 20 February – offering another thought-provoking day of digital journalism innovation and inspiration, with industry case studies and practical tips for newsrooms.
But we’re not stopping at the one day – for the first time we will also be offering the possibility to sign up for an additional three-hour, hands-on training session the following day, on Friday 21 February.
Tickets to the workshops cost £90 +VAT, or can be paired with a ticket to the conference on Thursday 20 February with a news:rewired+ ticket for £220 +VAT.
The three options for delegates to choose from are:
Tutor: Brian Williamson, designer, illustrator and visual journalist, KettleCorn
Brief description: A masterclass in creating web-native video, in which attendees will be able to create an interactive video from scratch using KettleCorn, which evolved out of Popcorn Maker, and was made with journalists in mind.
Tutor: Esa Mäkinen, news editor, data journalism, Helsingin Sanomat
Brief description: A hands-on workshop focused on how to tell data-driven stories using visualisations, with tutorials in using free tools such as Datawrapper and Timeline JS, and a chance for delegates to create their own visualisation within the workshop.
Tutor: Joe Galvin, journalist, Storyful
Brief description: A practical guide to the key tools and techniques for effective searching of social media and verification of content shared on such platforms, led by a journalist from the social media newswire and verification specialists, Storyful. There will also be a chance to put your newly-honed skills into practice on the day.
The workshops will be held at the same venue as news:rewired, at MSN UK’s offices in Victoria, London.
