"Best Practices for Creating Content with your Phone"
Workshop for Journalists, Educators May 19 in Springfield

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — "Best Practices for Creating Content with your Phone" is a workshop offered by University of Missouri Extension, in partnership with the Reynolds Journalism Institute at the University of Missouri, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sat. May 19, at The Library Station. 2535 N. Kansas Expressway, Springfield.

The workshop is hands-on, includes lunch and is free. Attendees will learn how to use free apps and a smartphone and social media to create and share engaging news or marketing video content using new tools and techniques.

Jim Flink, a former veteran Kansas City TV news reporter and son of longtime Missouri community newspaper publishers, will provide a hands-on experience in creating content with your phones. Jim now works with RJI, focusing on mobile, video news content and production, as well as on distribution and monetization strategies.

Attendance at this session has been capped at 35. A smaller group makes it possible for this program to be interactive and tailored to each attendee's expertise, interest and needs. This workshop is especially valuable for those who are just learning about new ways to connect and grow audiences. More experienced attendees will benefit from reviewing best practices and ideas and also learning about new ways of connecting with audiences.

"You know firsthand how explosive the recent growth of online video and visual storytelling has been. Your audiences look to you, the media of record in this area, to share news and info in this way, too. Come learn how," said David Burton, civic communication specialist with University of Missouri Extension.
