Transparent Journalism the Wiki-Way

This workshop explores transparent journalism using the wiki-model, where aspiring journalists and curious readers can learn the best transparency practises. We'll discuss what transparent journalism is and why it’s fundamental to the job. It will teach clear attribution: how to reference and attribute information, why we publish transcripts, how revision history works and how to create call-outs.

This workshop is for ideal for people interested in radical transparency in journalism.
