[Unconference] Session 1 Collaboration is a Messy Necessity

  • Saturday - 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Mineral Rooms D+E
  • #ONAuncon

Tell us what we've missed! The unconference is a chance for registered attendees to propose conversations on topics we may not have covered elsewhere.

Collaboration is a buzzword, but like most buzzwords, the real world implementation can be messy and even ineffective. Different editorial processes, tool chains and editorial calendars make collaboration a chaotic enterprise. So how do we make it work in an age of dwindling resources and great need of enterprise reporting and why is it so important? Join me for a round-table discussion of collaboration, what works and what doesn’t. This session is a highly interactive discussion with plenty of opportunity for input, discussion and experience sharing.

Heather Bryant is the founder and director of Project Facet, an open source software project to help manage the editorial process and facilitate collaboration between newsrooms. Facet received a Knight Prototype Grant in 2015. Heather is currently a JSK Fellow at Stanford studying how to help small, rural and emerging newsrooms build effective and meaningful editorial collaborations.
