Welcome to the LearningLAB 2010

WELCOME to LearningLAB, the Renaissance Journalism Center’s second annual multimedia training conference, held on October 1-2, 2010 in downtown San Francisco.

The conference drew about 100 people who participated in a rich array of workshops and all-day multimedia boot camps. Attendees represented a wide range of organizations, from local news organizations to nonprofit groups and foundations. We even had a small contingent of international journalists from Brazil, Cuba, Armenia and Canada who are involved in a journalism fellowship program at Stanford University.

Participants gave the program high marks:

“I was impressed by the line-up of workshops you had for the day, and found the sessions I was able to attend helpful,” wrote one attendee.

Another emailed us to say, “…as I looked over my notes I realized exactly how much I can benefit from my presenters’ generosity and expertise. This was a great professional opportunity….”

Julian Do, SoCal director of New America Media, wrote: “I thought the three-hour session was innovative in that it gave quality time to brainstorm ideas and options to attain the goals for participants’ organizations. This approach allowed participants to walk away with new and practical ideas that they could apply.”
