Check out the speaker lineup for the upcoming Klein News Innovation Camp

The 12th annual journalism unconference returns Saturday, Nov. 14. See the experts we're bringing in from newsrooms around the U.S. and which hot topics they'll be discussing.
This was originally published at our sister site,
The 12th annual Klein News Innovation Camp will be unlike any other before it.

For one, it’ll be entirely virtual — that much is obvious. But being entirely virtual, this annual unconference on the future of news will allow us to try some new tricks.

Like always, the event is organized by local community media company Technically Media in partnership with Temple University’s Klein College of Media and Communications. And the goal remains: to convene serious conversations and guide practical applications of best practices for driving the future of news, especially among local newsrooms. Check out our recap of the 2019 event , including topics like a decentralized web and data on diversity, for a taste of what that looks like in practice.

So what else is new? You’ll need to attend to find out. It’s all happening Saturday, Nov. 14.

We know you’re busy amid a hectic election season, so below is a quick look at the topics we’ll cover and the experts who will be discussing them.
