Free Online Workshop On Investigative Business Journalism

Deadline: 5 December 2011
Open to: professional and student journalists only
Costs: free of charge

Professional and student journalists can learn about business investigations in a free online workshop. The Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism presents “Quick-Hit Business Investigations – Concept to Execution.” During a free Webinar on Dec. 6, Matt Apuzzo, investigative reporter in the Washington bureau of The Associated Press, will offer ideas on how to conceive and execute quick-hit business investigations.  As an associated press investigative reporter, he will teach the participants how to frame an investigation as a question, where to look for public documents and how to find sources and get them to talk. Few news organizations have time these days for months-long projects. Apuzzo provides practical advice on how to pull off investigations that might take one to two weeks. The hour-long Webinar will be offered live at either noon or 4 p.m. EST on Dec. 6.

This free Webinar is sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. The Reynolds Center is funded by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation in Las Vegas. Besides its free regional workshops and online training, the center runs, offering daily tips, training and resources for those who want to do a better job of covering business.

Those who successfully complete three regional workshops or Webinars presented by the Reynolds Center are eligible to receive a “Circle of Achievement” award certificate. If you have any questions about the Webinar or the center, please email Executive Director Linda Austin.
