Online content strategy for journalists
Should I liveblog a breaking news story? Or do a Facebook Live? Or would a traditional news story be the best path? How should I follow it up? What will reach my audience, and what will get me the best traffic? How do you choose how to spend your precious time or staff resources on the right kinds of coverage for your audience? And which kind of news story is each kind of digital content suitable for? These are the questions journalists and editors face every day in the digital age.
This one-day intensive course is designed to help you navigate those questions, and make great decisions on how to use the right style of coverage for the right story. Led by Adam Tinworth, a digital journalism expert for over a decade, and a visiting lecturer at City, University of London, this course will bring you up to speed with the cutting edge of thinking about online content, with plenty of real-world examples and exercises derived from his work with organisations in the UK and overseas.
Storytelling with infographics
This course will help you to think creatively about visualising your story and data in the most effective way for your audience across printed and online media. This one-day workshop, led by Nigel Hawtin, who worked as graphics editor at New Scientist for 20 years, is aimed at journalists, writers, PRs and communications teams who are looking to incorporate infographics into their storytelling.
At the end of this course you will: be equipped with the background knowledge and skills needed to produce or commission an effective infographic; understand the role of infographics and data visualisations for storytelling; understand how to translate complex issues into appropriate visual forms; avoid common mistakes; and be able to look at other infographics critically.
Please note the training day on 8 March takes place at The Bridge, 81 Southwark Bridge Road, London SE1 0NQ.
