Are you a journalist, recent graduate, college student, or a professional interested in learning investigative reporting techniques?
Spend one week in June, 2014 on the Boston University campus learning investigative reporting research skills, computer-assisted reporting, interviewing techniques and how to structure, write and edit investigative stories for print, the web and broadcast outlets.
We will teach to your ability- whether you are a seasoned reporter, or a student trying to gain new techniques. It is important to let us know your ability level so we do not repeat things you may already know.
Participants will learn investigative reporting by actually working on a story that either they propose and can bring back to their media outlet or that NECIR instructors assign. Participants will receive daily, hands-on training and supervision. You’ll work with award-winning local and national journalists, including university faculty. In addition, the training will include seminars on financial analysis, ethics, undercover reporting and scraping the web. NECIR wants to provide journalists and journalism students worldwide with hands-on investigative reporting training that will help them fulfill their mission of holding government and powerful institutions accountable.
Participants will be in touch with staff from NECIR before and after the workshop takes place, through a series of webinars and online chats. Students will come prepared with story ideas and will continue to work and refine them after they leave with hands-on help from our journalists.
A maximum of twelve students will be accepted for the workshop, so sign up today.
NECIR also can develop custom training programs for larger groups, or can accommodate additional weeks of training. If you are interested in learning more please contact us at the links below.
