IRE is bringing its highly acclaimed Watchdog Workshop to Vancouver. Co-hosted by Global Reporting Centre and Veritas, this workshop will focus on issues of 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.
These sessions are designed for reporters, editors, and producers from small, midsize and large publications, TV, radio, web-only news sites and news blogs. Freelancers, students and journalism educators are also encouraged to attend.
This is the second event hosted by Veritas, a new Canadian charitable foundation which fosters professional development for journalists, as well as 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.
