ONA Weekly #300

By on March 18, 2020

How ONA staff works from home

Our team typically works two days in the office, and three days a week from home — but like many other news organizations, we’ll be working entirely remotely for the coming weeks. For those who are new to telecommuting, we’ve pulled together the habits and tips we’ve developed for working from home successfully — including expectations, tools we rely on, taking breaks and more. 

Leverage your evergreen content

This week, we’re revisiting this popular workshop from ONA19 on how to turn evergreen content into mini-courses. Led by teams from Pew Research Center, The Washington Post, Buzzfeed and The New Yorker, the session walks you through distilling content into bite-size pieces and delivering it via email for subscribers to learn at their own pace.

How we select conference sessions

The ONA20 Program Committee reviews each and every submission to our Suggestion Box to recommend ideas and speakers for the conference programming. As they review, they look for speaker diversity, combining similar topics and making suggestions for improvement. Learn more about how we choose sessions for our annual conference, and submit your ideas to the ONA20 Suggestion Box by March 26.
