This week I led engagement workshops at The Reporter in Vacaville, Calif., and at the Santa Cruz Sentinel for Digital First Media newsrooms in Northern California.
I’m posting the links and slides here for the benefit of people attending the workshops.
Martin Reynolds led sessions on Oakland Voices (particularly discussing a post by Adimu Madyun) and on the forums and workshops he leads for the Bay Area News Group, including forums on asthma, Trayvon Martin and diversity in San Mateo and a workshop on public records. Martin also showed the News MoJo van and discussed how it can help in community engagement and news coverage.
Lanz Christian Bañes led a session on photo engagement (assisted by Chris Riley in the Vacaville workshop), discussing their Our Town and Generation Snaps projects. (Watch for more on those projects soon on the Inside Thunderdome blog.)
Here are Lanz’s slides:
Jason Halley led a session on Tout at the Vacaville workshop. Here are his slides:
Travis Souders led a session on live sports coverage at the Vacaville workshop. He’ll also be featured shortly on Inside Thunderdome. His live coverage was discussed in the announcement of the October DFMie winners (he won for the live sports coverage).
I presented three sessions: an overview of community engagement, the social media conversation and liveblogging. My slides for the two workshops (which varied slightly, and I didn’t show them all in either case) are below:
