Community engagement isn’t fundamentally about technology. It’s attitudes and perspectives that invite, listen to and take into account community conversation and perspectives.
In this new training opportunity from the Missouri Press Foundation, Joy Mayer of the Missouri School of Journalism will teach you not only about the digital tools that make that conversation easier, but she’ll offer her expert insight into how to open your newsroom up to interaction with your community. You’ll look at digital tools make that easy, and you’ll talk a lot about social media and other free, easy paths to online interaction.
Plan now to attend the Engaging Community Newspaper Readers seminar from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, July 20, at the Reynolds Journalism Institute on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia. The cost is $40, if you register before July 1, and includes lunch.
