Context

As television stations are transforming into multi-outlets media organisations, this training is designed to help editors and journalists to change their mindset and get out of their TV-only news production habits. The session is divided into two separate trainings with different goals, but all delegates will work together at some point to experiment as a temporary newsroom with new techniques, formats and publishing of these formats.
The editors (newsroom managers) will learn about the new formats available to them as tools to reach new audiences and carry the news to them. They will also learn about techniques on how to train their staff to produce these new formats.
The Journalists/Content producers will learn techniques to produce other items than the traditional TV packages they are used to do. These include the use of their mobile phone, desktop computer, online tools to produce a variety of items on and around the same story; think data visualization, Snapchat, Instagram Stories, Explanatory videos and much more.
On the last day of the training, the two groups will merge into a temporary newsroom, covering actual events in the host city. The editors will be in charge of designing the news coverage and follow its production. The journalists will cover the story in a variety of newly learned formats.
