December’s news:rewired is fast approaching, and Journalism.co.uk is pleased to announce the training options for news:rewired+, a full day of practical workshops taking place the day after the conference (2 December), as well as new speakers joining us on 1 December to discuss new models in local media, techniques for international investigations, and other trends and innovations in digital journalism.
As always, Journalism.co.uk workshops are focused on gaining practical skills and hands-on experience – this December, learn more about social media content strategies, advanced online research techniques and social video.
The upcoming news:rewired conference and the full day of training will take place at the MSN UK offices, in Victoria, London.
The main focus for news:rewired has always been in providing practical skills and advice for journalists in their day to day work.
With that in mind, we’re pleased to make the news:rewired+ training day options available for the forthcoming event in July.
The full conference will take place on Thursday 16 July, with a day of speeches, sessions and workshops on digital journalism, followed by a day of training on Friday 17 July.
Check out the new course listings.
A news:rewired+ ticket entitles you entry to the main conference on February 3, 2015, plus your choice of one of three training courses to be held at MSN the following day.
Our news:rewired+ tickets give delegates access to both the news:rewired conference on Wednesday 23 July and one of three training courses on Thursday 24 July.
There are three training courses to choose from are:
– Mobile journalism: Create multimedia on iPhone & iPad, led by Glen Mulcahy, innovation lead at RTÉ
– Creating a buzz: How to grow social media communities, led by Luke Lewis, editor of BuzzFeed UK
– Data journalism online, led by Conrad Quilty-Harper, data journalist at Ampp3d
We will have more details on the contents of the data journalism course very soon.
news:rewired+ tickets are currently available at a limited discount earlybird rate of just £245 +VAT, which is a 25 per cent discount on the training courses (which cost £200 +VAT to book separately).
However, this discount will only be available for the first 50 tickets sold (news:rewired and news:rewired+ combined), or by the end of Thursday 8 May, whichever comes first. After this point news:rewired+ tickets will rise to £300 +VAT, which still gives you a 15 per cent discount on the training course when booked as part of news:rewired+.
On Thursday 20 February, we will be running the next instalment of our digital journalism conference, news:rewired, which will look at key tools, techniques and skills being harnessed by newsrooms in the UK and further afield, and some of the big challenges and opportunities facing online publishers today.
As well as the one-day conference, we are also offering an additional half-day of training, consisting of a series of three, three-hour workshops the following day (Friday 21 February).
The workshops will be held at the same venue as news:rewired, MSN UK’s offices in Cardinal Place, Victoria, London.
The three options are:
1. Web-native video
2. Data visualisation
3. Searching social media and verification
