BarCamp NewsInnovation, Philadelphia’s annual, one-day national un-conference on journalism innovation and the future of news, will take place on April 26th at Annenberg Hall, on the main campus of Temple University in Philadelphia. This year’s keynote presenter will be Amanda Zamora, the senior engagement editor at ProPublica.
Take a look back at #bcni13 with this overview including interviews with Chris Wink of Technically Media, Andrew Mendelson of CPIJ and the Temple University Department of Journalism, Amy Quinn of PlanPhilly and NewsWorks, and Temple ’12 journalism grad Matt Petrillo of @News13ssptv, @FSRN and @NarrativelyNY.
In case you haven’t been to a barcamp, it is a user-generated conference — or un-conference — where everyone is encouraged to present and expected to participate in a grid of workshops that develop throughout the day. It feels something like social media in the face-to-face world.
Doors will open at 9 a.m. and the presentations will start at 10 a.m. After an hour break for lunch at 12 p.m., the last presentations will start at 4 p.m. (FAQs)
