The Internet and digital journalism: What reporters and editors need to know


The news business is changing rapidly, and increasingly it centers around digital technology. This session will help you figure out what skills you need to be developing now. We’ll also discuss the digital vocabulary journalists should have and dive into the debate about whether or not reporters should know how to code. Additionally, we’ll look at how mid-career journalists can reboot their skill set. And as always, we’ll be taking your questions.
