Friday, October 19, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM (MDT)
Don’t miss this free day-long workshop by the social-media and community-engagement guru at Digital First Media, Steve Buttry (right). His company is managing the transition to “digital-first” journalism and publishing by several hundred U.S. newspapers owned by MediaNews Group and Journal Register Co. Steve will cover working “digital first” in a legacy news organization; strategy for digital-only news entities; an overview of tools and techniques used by the digital-first journalist; some of the best digital-first journalism produced by journalists; and how to prepare for and find a job in digital journalism.
This event is made possible by the Digital News Test Kitchen and the Journalism & Mass Communication program at the University of Colorado Boulder. CU students, faculty, and staff are invited. Registrations for the workshop also are welcomed from journalism students and faculty from regional universities and colleges. Lunch and refreshments provided to participants.
