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.
The course will cover:
- visual storytelling
- data journalism
- working with developers,
- user experience and presenting news online,
- multimedia journalism
- using social media and working with communities
Tutors will include Laura Oliver (Community Manager), Benji Lanyado (journalist, web producer and developer), Mariana Santos (Motion and Interaction designer), Matt Andrews (lead client-side web developer), John Domokos (video producer), Simon Rogers (editor of Datablog and Datastore) and Martin Belam (principal consultant at Emblem and former UX Lead at the Guardian).
There will also be a keynote speech by Paul Lewis (Special Projects Editor for the Guardian).
