If you are currently an editor or your goal is to be an editor, this workshop is for you. It’s a big step to go from reporter or photographer or copy editor or designer to an editor. You are now responsible for other human beings. This workshop will teach you how to lead and manage your fellow journalists and build a newsroom that serves its community well.

 Right Tools for the Right Job: Journalism in the Age of Audience Centricity – $20
“Convergence,” “multi-media reporting” or “digital-first media” are buzzwords that have student news operations chasing trends and losing readers. This three-hour workshop digs into how to define, reach and satisfy your audience with everything from traditional news products to social media. Learn how to most effectively use available tools to tell your stories and serve as a vital information outlet for your campus.
