Guest speaker: Gabe Johnson
senior video journalist and senior producer, The Wall Street Journal

Digital technology is altering the way journalists are doing their jobs — from producing video and slideshows, to capturing stories on mobile devices and using them to interact on social and media networks. Gabe will address the rapidly changing field of journalism as it faces a future that is increasingly viewed on a screen rather than in print, and share his views and expertise on today’s array of digital technologies.

Our time together with Gabe Johnson will include these topics:

  • understanding today’s digital technologies, and why and how to use them
  • identifying newsworthy stories
  • exploring methods of capturing stories using digital media
  • tackling the challenging process of fact-checking
  • Q & A with Gabe

Event includes light pupus and refreshments
