We live in an era of layoffs, buyouts and shutdowns. As we have fewer resources and more to cover, it’s time to learn how to make choices about what we do. We’ll see what’s worked for other newsrooms and what impact it’s had.
As newsrooms shrink, many are trying to do more with less. It’s time to stop that madness and focus on doing the right things instead. The good news is that a handful of those things are easy, free and will help you get back to creating the kind of journalism you want to create.
WHAT WILL I LEARN:
We’ll focus on three things you need and three things you need to do.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE
Anyone who is tired of trying (and failing) to do everything.
