From Investigative Reporters and Editors:
IRE will bring its acclaimed journalism watchdog workshop series to
Minneapolis, MN on September 29. This is an affordable opportunity to sharpen
your skills and stay one step ahead in the changing news industry.
Hosted by the University of Minnesota, this training will offer several of our
core sessions that will improve your ability to find information on the Web
quickly, and point you to key documents and data that will help you add depth
to your daily work and produce quick-hit enterprise stories. In addition, this
workshop will give you tips on bulletproofing stories, digging deeper on the
Web with social media, search engines and much more.
These sessions are designed for reporters, editors and producers from small,
midsize and large publications, TV, radio stations, Web-only news sites and
news blogs. Freelancers, students and journalism educators are also encouraged
to attend. Join IRE’s experienced trainers and a group of veteran reporters
for our Watchdog Workshop.
Register to attend the optional computer-assisted reporting hands-on training
Sunday, September 30. These skills are crucial in a time when more and more
data is available. You'll learn how analyzing information with spreadsheets can
better inform your reporting. The skills you'll acquire can be put to work
right away to helping you be a better watchdog.
