Visual Storytelling in Online Journalism
When it comes to online storytelling, most publishers rely on standard conventions of presentation. However, the web offers wide-ranging possibilities for engaging audiences in story. This session gives attendees a fresh take on visual storytelling today, with guidance for how attendees can begin to explore new practices and methods.  How can we be more strategic in our approach to highly engaging storytelling? How can we user-test new ideas and measure meaningful engagement? What experiments are too big, or too small, and how do we determine a scope that's just right? This session encourages journalists of all levels and in all corners of the newsroom to embrace their inner critical thinker (you don't have to be creative at all) in the journey and process of story exploration.

Reporting on Human Rights and Social Justice
Reporting on critical issues today requires knowledge about human rights conventions and social justice campaigns. Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and the immigration struggles of dreamers are national and local human rights issues that journalists report on. Understanding human rights conventions, language and debates will strengthen journalists reporting on these issues. In this workshop student journalists will learn how to apply human rights standards to stories in their communities.
