The next newsrewired digital journalism event will take place on 22-23 November at Reuters HQ in Canary Wharf, London. This will be Journalism.co.uk’s 20th newsrewired conference, featuring a mix of panels, talks and workshops on 22 November, followed by a full day of training for newsrewired+ delegates, who will be able to register to attend one of three full-day, practical training courses.
We are now able to reveal some of the topics we plan to include on the agenda:
Mobile storytelling – From video to longform, text-based articles, how can media organisations tell stories better suited to a mobile audience? And how do smartphone users’ behaviours shape how they interact with media brands?
Experimenting and failing – Newsrewired has previously showcased interesting newsroom experiments that resulted in successful projects and great stories, but what happens when the risk doesn’t pay off? We’re planning a workshop examining attitudes to failure in the newsroom and what happens when things don’t go as planned in the innovation department.
Collaboration – A great digital story or news product is rarely created by only one person – different skills have to come together, bringing editorial, product, design and development staff in the same room. But different teams work at different speeds, so how do media organisations promote a collaborative environment in their newsrooms and safeguard against “culture shock”?
More topics and speakers will be announced over the coming weeks, but you now can register by buying an early-bird ticket at a discount.
