Who should attend

This course has been specifically designed for those who have been working in journalism and want to explore the opportunities and confront the challenges of digital journalism with greater confidence.

You may be:

  • In a senior editorial position and responsible for recruiting new staff and managing a digital production budget
  • A journalist working with developers and digital designers
  • Returning to work after a break for parental leave or other reasons
  • A freelancer seeking opportunities and networks

About the course

Get a sound understanding of the opportunities and challenges digital technology brings to journalism. Explore some of the latest news stories - Trump and fake news, Cambridge Analytica, citizen reporting of terror attacks - by delving into the technology, tools, and issues.

On this five-day course you’ll be introduced to the pivotal digital developments in web journalism, social media and digital publishing. You will find out about latest reader expectations that have made new business models not only possible but necessary. Whilst this is not a ‘techie’ course you will have the opportunity to get to grips with technology, such as Google Analytics and data visualisation, in some practical workshops.

Through a series of case-studies you’ll look at different revenue-generating business models. There will be the opportunity to contribute to current debates and issues in digital journalism such as participatory culture, verification and disruption. Through a series of outputs, the course will conclude with the presentation of a digital portfolio published online to reflect your skills and progress.

You should have some prior journalism experience but you do not need to have any previous digital knowledge.
