Have a big idea? Pitch an ONA15 Lightning Talk

Every ONA conference is driven by ideas from the digital journalism community. In the spring, we take session pitches through the Suggestion Box, and throughout the spring and summer, the Program Team helps select and build out sessions. Now, just before the conference, we’re opening up two more ways to get involved: the Lightning Talks and the Unconference.

If you’ve got an idea for a full-blown conference session, you should pitch the unconference. If you’ve got a big idea to share and the guts to present it in five minutes or less, send us your lightning talk by Wednesday, Sept. 23. Continue reading

Can’t-Miss Guide to ONA15: Program Team co-chair Luis Gomez

Note: This is first in a series of posts written by the conference organizers recommending sessions they feel will be particularly interesting. Of course, we hope every session is valuable to the right audience, but with so many things happening at ONA15,  we want to offer guidance from a variety of view points that will give you useful highlights. These recommendations come from Luis Gomez, co-chair of the ONA15 program team.

So you’ve made it this far, and that feeling may already be setting in. That feeling is the slight sense of panic or FOMO (fear-of-missing-out) as you come face-to-face with the ONA15 conference schedule. So many options! What to pick? Where to go?

Don’t worry! Those of us who helped shaped this year’s conference are excited to show you our top picks for all three days. Unlike the pride I get when I talk about my favorite bands or my favorite movies (Kubrick emphasis here), I feel it’s a sense of duty to emphasize the sessions that I believe will make you a better journalist at the end of the day.

Assuming you’re reading this and you haven’t quite planned out your sessions for all three days, here are five recommendations I consider to be “can’t-miss” sessions: Continue reading

Tell us what we missed! Pitch to the #ONAuncon

Hello!

Looking for a different kind of conference experience when you arrive at ONA15? Then look no further — that’s what the annual unconference is for.

TinyLetter_LogoWhat is the unconference, you ask? Every year, a team of volunteers gets attendees to submit their ideas for what they think should be a part of the official conference but isn’t. It could be a panel, it could be a hands-on workshop, it could be a roundtable discussion. We’re here to help you make those ideas into realities. Continue reading
