APPM: Meeting the Online Demand for Photos with Stories
Earlier this year, Poynter published a column about how to find free photos online to accompany news articles. Many in the photojournalism community were quick to point out a number of ethical pitfalls in Poynter's suggestions that have ensnared many newsrooms. What are those pitfalls, and what are some practical ways to meet online demand while also maintaining high levels of journalistic integrity?

How can you use human-centered design to put the audience first and produce impactful storytelling? We will review a project done by the Philadelphia Media Network and the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, which recruited three real Philadelphians to participate in a half-day human-centered design exercise. They interviewed these volunteers about their habits and priorities, discovered real needs and brainstormed service journalism story ideas. A popular series called “We The People” came out of it.

Big J Track: Comments: A Path to Subscribers
In recent years, the level of nastiness on comments on stories have left editors tormented about how to handle them, with some news organizations ditching comments from their site all together. But in the past year, as subscriptions became a more important part of the revenue stream, publishers found some interesting data. It turns out subscribers are far more likely to comment on articles or read the comments themselves, making them a critical selling and retention tool. And then a new open-source commenting system, funded by Knight Foundation, was released, decreasing costs for publishers and improving moderation. So where does that leave us now? We will walk through the latest thinking with nationally renowned researcher Talia Stroud of the Center for Media Engagement at the University of Texas and Andrew Losowsky of The Coral Project.

This session is sponsored by the Austin American-Statesman and GateHouse Media.

Innovation Track: Changing Others While You Change Yourself
Newsroom leaders work in a constantly changing environment, which poses challenges on multiple levels. First, the job of a newsroom leader is now multidimensional, working with all parts of the company to not only create great journalism and grow audience, but also to advise on and often drive revenue. Editors also often oversee or work with multiple newsrooms at a time. And while they are changing themselves, editors have to get into the right frame of mind to evolve the way their teams work. How does anyone manage to do both these things at the same time? What are the right strategies for each challenge?

Workplace Integrity: Eliminating Harassment and Discrimination in Media
In the year of #metoo, newsrooms are confronting incidents of sexual harassment by reporters, photographers, editors and photo editors. What have we learned? Drawing on the lessons of the Newseum's groundbreaking Power Shift Summit, Jill Geisler will lead a wide-open conversation focused on changing the way we hire, train and respond to issues of workplace misconduct and revisiting the systems that led to years of silence. We will look at which publishers are examining the intersection of harassment, discrimination and incivility and taking on the big challenges. Who’s recognizing that things that aren’t necessarily illegal are still unacceptable? Who’s looking out for the least powerful in newsrooms: our interns, temporary workers and freelancers?

Big J Track: Editing the Archives
One of the most sacred beliefs for news organizations is that we do not take down published articles or photos. But editors are having to balance that belief with the knowledge that even the most trivial crime brief, although factually correct, can have a devastating effect on someone's life 10 years later. Editors are fielding an increasing number of appeals fromthe subjects of these stories who argue that the photos should be removed or the articles should at least be updated with the resolution to the case. What should you do? When should we order up more reporting? Should a story ever come down?

Innovation Track: Using Opinions to Reach Young People
How can your opinion journalism bridge the gap between potential college-age audience members’ political activism and their lack of knowledge and access to high-quality information? How do you cut through the noise and provide the structure and reliability young people seek with the goal of fostering a vibrant democracy and a more unified civic -- and civil -- life? This generation has had less civic education than previous generations, especially in K-12. It has been eliminated from school curricula across the country. A recent Knight Foundation/Gallup study said that more than 60 percent of college students show strong support for the First Amendment. However, some say that diversity and inclusion are more important to a democracy than free speech.
