Handling eyewitness media: etiquette, ethics and lawBOOK HERE

When news breaks, the process of discovering and verifying amateur footage is just the tip of the iceberg. Led by Jenni Sargent and Sam Dubberley of the Eyewitness Media Hub, this course will teach you about the ownership rights of different social networks, how to legally and appropriately secure consent to use material found on social media, as well as how to protect your online archive from retrospective claims of ownership on posts, pictures or videos.

Social media content strategies SOLD OUT

Learn how to put together a social media strategy that will get real results, whether the aim is to increase engagement, boost site traffic or make your content easier to find. Led by Sue Llewellyn, this course is designed to get you thinking creatively about generating content your audiences will really want to engage with.

Introduction to infographicsBOOK HERE

This workshop will demonstrate what underpins a successful infographic, from simple comparisons through maps and charts to diagrams, networks, processes and explanations. Tutor Lulu Pinney, a “freelance infographista” who previously worked at BBC News Online, will explain how to define your message and identify good material to work with, as well as the basic principles of visual design.
