SRCCON:LEAD 2019 Documentation

It’s important to us to keep SRCCON events small enough to feel friendly and conversational, but we also care about getting the ideas people discuss into the wider world. The most important way this happens is when attendees return to their newsrooms and put new skills and approaches to work, but we also document as extensively as possible. This page collects resources you can refer back to:

Session Notes & Resources

All sessions at SRCCON events have a collaborative etherpad that facilitators and attendees can use to share links and capture notes. Each entry on our schedule has a link to that session’s etherpad. We also collect slide decks, worksheets, and other documentation right here—if you’re a facilitator and you have session resources to share, let us know!
