As news consumption moves from print to pixels, journalists have had to learn completely new skills, techniques and approaches to their craft.
This hands-on, weekend masterclass offers a unique insight into digital journalism through a series of sessions taught by Guardian experts. Through a mix of formal tuition and hands-on exercises you'll get practical advice on digital best practice, learn new skills and gain the confidence to pursue your own projects.
Tutors will include Benji Lanyado (journalist, web producer and developer), Mariana Santos (Motion and Interaction designer), John Domokos (video producer) and Martin Belam (principal consultant at Emblem and former UX Lead at the Guardian).
More tutors will be confirmed soon.
This course is ideal for anybody interested in breaking into the industry or launching their own digital journalism project - as well as journalists from a print background looking to develop digital skills.
