This full day seminar will provide a unique opportunity for English and Media teachers to find out how an international news organisation works and gain knowledge, skills and resources. It will focus on writing and editing news and features, video, visuals, web innovation and developing new audiences.
There will be sessions from journalists, editors, designers and multimedia producers on reporting and presenting news and features in different formats and on different platforms for the Guardian’s worldwide audience.
Delegates will meet members of the digital development team who will discuss web innovation and apps. The research department will discuss how and where readers consume journalism on desktops, mobiles and tablets, the importance of analytics in reader development and future consumer trends. Our audience and communities teams will outline the importance of reader engagement and social media.
In the afternoon you will take part in a hands-on editing and news production workshop in the Education Centre. There will also be a tour of the editorial floors where you will see the news cycle at work.
