About Webinars

In this virtual classroom, participants can join in a seminar led by Poynter faculty and visiting faculty. This screencast includes live audio and a slideshow presentation in which participants can post questions and respond to poll questions posed by the host.

All news is local. Ferguson. Orlando. Sutherland Springs. Parkland. When it breaks, local journalists are the first ones to cover shootings, fires, protests and more. When national media leaves, local remains and keeps asking accountability questions. What would happen if we collaborated?
