Investigative journalism is the most highly-regarded branch of the profession, often helping reveal corruption, shining a light on social plights, influencing public policy and triggering change. It takes time and effort, but also an understanding of the basic concepts and tools used to carry out investigations.
To help people interested in learning about the newest resources and techniques in the field, the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americaswill offer the free Massive Open Online Course (or MOOC) “Investigative Journalism for the Digital Age” with the support of the Knight Foundation.
The course will take place from May 12 to June 15, 2014. Click here to register.
