2017 IRE Cross Border Reporting Workshop
MAY 20 TO 21, 2017 AT THE LIU INSTITUTE MULTIPURPOSE ROOM, UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
IRE is bringing its highly rated Watchdog Workshop to Vancouver. Co-hosted by Global Reporting Centre and Veritas – Advancing Journalism in the Public Interest, this workshop will focus on issues on shared interest between the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The conference will also include several of IRE’s core training sessions to 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 offer several hands-on sessions in analyzing and visualizing data, and much more.
This is the second event hosted by Veritas, a new Canadian charitable foundation which fosters professional development for journalists and public engagement and education. Also co-hosting this year is the Vancouver-based Global Reporting Centre, a non-profit organization dedicated to highlighting important neglected stories around the world through collaboration with leading journalists and media organizations.
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.
