A unique set of seminars and hands-on workshops that bring new technology and design ideas to the Columbia Journalism community. Our goal is simple — help students learn new ways to find and tell stories, new ways to inform and entertain. Each topic will commence with a Friday seminar and will follow with a Saturday hands-on workshop centered around building.
Students attending three of the seminar-workshops over the course of the year will receive a graduation award indicating the extra breadth of expertise they sought out during their time at the journalism school.
Seminars and workshops are held at The Brown Institute's Columbia University space, at the journalism school.
Established in 2012, the Institute is a collaboration between Columbia University's Journalism School and Stanford's School of Engineering. Its mission is to explore new forms of storytelling, with the intent of furthering both engineering research and journalistic practice.
