More than 80 journalists, students and educators took over the University of Minnesota’s School of Journalism & Mass Communications on Saturday for a day of free digital training, brainstorming and connection with peers.

Head to journalists.org for our full list of session resources and quick takeaways from our weekend in Minneapolis. This includes notes from the 12 sessions and digital resources from the presenters, who included the New York Times’ Kevin Quealy, NPR’s Doug Mitchell, the Washington Post’s Yuri Victor, Placeblogger founder Lisa Williams, Tomorrow Magazine co-founder Amanda Hess, the Denver Post’s Daniel Petty and more.

We also recorded audio from a couple of these workshops. They’re available, along with audio from ONA12, on ONA’s SoundCloud page.

I’ve been an NABJ member since 2006 and a member of the Online News Association since 2009.  I attended ONA’s convention in Boston last year and it transformed my life.  Which is why I’m SO excited that ONA is bringing its ONACamp to our convention this year.

Our attendees will get a full day Learning Lab Join with hands-on training with some of the top leaders in digital journalism. You’ll learn the latest in  digital investigative reporting, mobile reporting, social media, audience engagement skills, and web tools.  Click here to see the full slate of sessions!
