Newsroom management and new media

This lecture to mid-career journalists at the Sri Lanka College of Journalism (SLCJ) looks at how new media can help strengthen newsroom management – by improving and streamlining workflows, providing new avenues of news generation and dissemination and strengthening investigative journalism, even under repressive, censorious regimes. Importantly, the technologies and platforms I cover can be leveraged with little or no cost overheads and in the swabhasha, limited only by the creativity of the journalists.

Earlier at SLCJ, I’ve lectured on new media in Sri Lanka, new media use in health reporting, social & new media tactics: Generating and curating provincial news and new media in election reporting.
