Audience Engagement in a Post-Truth Age: What it means and how to learn the activities connected with it: Digital Journalism: Vol 6, No 8
In any discussion about a “post-truth age,” the audience is both part of the problem and part of the solution. The authority of journalism is called into question if everyone can participate in generating and spreading verified and unverified, relevant and irrelevant “news.” At the same time, journalism can integrate the audience into the editorial process and dialogue in an unprecedented variety of ways, thereby disclosing the way journalism works and raising awareness for the difference between journalism and any form of mis- and disinformation. Thus “Audience Engagement” is becoming a key factor for journalism in a post-truth era. This article analyses dimensions of audience engagement in a holistic sense. Key findings were gathered through interviews with practitioners within the innovative training format “Learning Lab Audience Engagement.” Factors for a successful audience engagement comprise a paradigm shift away from a “lecturing” towards a “dialogue” approach. This approach changes not only journalism, media and newsroom cultures: Educational institutions have to change their attitude accordingly. The experience of the participants suggests that a broad understanding of media and training organisations alike as “engaging organisations” brings with it several challenges and limitations but can help to raise trust.

They never made it to the end: Reader uses of a multimedia narrat...: Ingenta Connect
How does an audience respond to the structure, visual design and narrative flow of a multimedia narrative? Are readers following the course that an author-driven linear reading path suggests? This study investigates these questions through an eye-tracking experiment. In research within news websites that employ eye-tracking experiments the case in this study represents a new phenomenon for investigation, the longform multimedia feature. It is also especially interesting to explore how the readers interact with this type of narrative because the narrative is constructed as an author-driven embedded multimedia story and thus resemble what Dowling and Vogan describe as the ‘urtext’ of the multimedia longform genre. The findings of this study indicate that readers navigate according to the authordriven narrative flow within a chapter/part. But the readers in this study missed or misunderstood the navigational options between story parts. The ongoing digitalization in media outlets and the experimentation and developing of journalistic products might benefit from research addressing multi-methodological approaches.

We’re getting closer to the day when news apps and interactives can be easily preserved in perpetuity » Nieman Journalism Lab
The software tool we’re trying to build is an emulation-based web archiving tool to archive the…well, internet. In particular, dynamic projects like news apps that can’t currently be fully archived by anyone,” Boss said. “This tool is the first step in that process. If we don’t have a way to capture and compress these things through emulation, we can’t begin to think about any other aspects of the process.”

Engaging the Audience in a Digitised Television Production Process: A “hierarchy of influences” approach: Journalism Practice: Vol 12, No 7
This article discusses producer practices and the reasons why they engage their audience in the production process. In a digitised media context, audiences have become more visible, mainly through social media, and have more means to participate. Our research deconstructs the production process of a particular television programme by means of the “hierarchy of influences” model, which separates micro and macro levels that influence production. It draws on in-depth interviews with all editors of Flemish current affairs programme De Afspraak (The Appointment) and on a three-month participatory observation. We conclude that immersive ways of engaging the audience are applied in our specific case. More broadly, we argue that although practices change, pre-existing norms and values about the television audience remain central to how producers engage their audience through digital and social media.

New website for Newsround
The first thing the Newsround audience will notice is the range of participatory experiences that will be available. We want Newsround to be the place where children can find out, join in and be heard, and with new comments features, quizzes and the ability to rank lists, children will be able to shape news content in a way that hasn't been possible before.   

This is the first step the audience will notice in a programme of transformation that will continue as we deliver on Newsround's part of Children's Kids 2020 strategy. Later this year we will be releasing new mobile friendly formats and developing ways of explaining the news through online games.
