Growing Community Engagement at the Los Angeles Times

I had an unusual situation where I was part of three teams: audience engagement/social media, education and a high school journalism initiative. Over the course of a year, our projects — including student immigration walkouts, closure of LAUSD, and Porter Ranch gas leak — experimented with different techniques to use digital tools to integrate readers into the reporting process, and to visually demonstrate their contributions.
