The J Word 2.6: Digital Innovation, Inclusivity & Design
Play • 47 min

Innovation in digital longform journalism, inclusivity and engagement in freedom of information requests and reporting, and balancing entrepreneurship with conventional journalism. We hit these three topics with three world-leading scholars, discussing the dynamics of journalists working in groups, doing digital design, and engaging citizens in accessing and interpreting public records that then contribute to participatory reporting. Our guests include Marcel Broersma, Rosanna Planer, and Paul Mihailidis.
