First Draft Live: Free workshops for journalists broadcast live online

In Collaboration with Guardian, The New York Times and AJ+

First Draft Live is a series of free workshops in social newsgathering and verification, livestreamed from newsrooms around the world.

At each event, members of the First Draft Coalition present tools and techniques for dealing with eyewitness media in news to an audience of invited journalists and online viewers.

After the success of our first two live workshops from the Guardian and The New York Times, the third in the series was at AJ+ in San Francisco on Thursday 14th July.

You can watch all the workshops from #FDLive3 at AJ+ here and check out the videos from previous events below.
