Who it’s for:

We want news:rewired to be an event for working journalists, trainees, journalism students and academics to learn new multimedia, social media and online skills from those with first-hand experience.

This event will be informal – with plenty of time for questions, networking and hopefully some new partnerships.

What we hope you’ll get:

First-hand advice on using new technologies, tools and skills for online journalism, whether that’s presentation or newsgathering;

Practical case studies from those who are pioneering new techniques in journalism;

Advice on what works and what doesn’t – from video and audio, to third-party websites and using data;

A chance to meet, network and share ideas with colleagues from across the industry.
