On Tuesday, May 14, the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) and the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication’s (SOJC) Agora Journalism Center will host “Dissection H: Impact”, the eighth event in the CIR series.
CIR’s Dissection events aim to bring together media practitioners, students, researchers, community partners and funders to generate and sustain a cross-field conversation about common challenges in order strengthen the community of practice for media impact measurement and analysis.
“Dissection H, the latest of a series of nation-wide conversation and workshop led by CIR, is ‘devoted to deepening our sense of what media impact is, how to measure it and why it matters,’” explains Andrew DeVigal, Chair in Journalism Innovation and Civic Engagement. “I’d highly encourage anyone who is interested in the impact of journalism and communication, media research as well as identifying new forms of measuring success to attend and be a part of the conversation.”
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Walnut Room, on the campus of the University of Oregon. There will be two groups of presentations with panel Q&A’s. Each presenter will have roughly 10 minutes to talk about his or her work, and how they interpret media impact and civic engagement. Participant’s include The Center for Public Integrity, The Seattle Times, and Solutions Journalism Network.
