Investigative Reporters and Editors watchdog workshop coming to Minneapolis

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.
