Course: Whose Truth? Tools for Smart Science Journalism in the Digital Age

“As journalists, we ignore science not only at our own peril, but at the peril of our readers, viewers and listeners.

In this course, you’ll learn to how make sense of scientific data and tell stories in ways that connect with your audience. You’ll get techniques and tips to improve your interviewing and reporting skills. You’ll also learn how to lift the veil from front groups to launch investigations based on informed fact-gathering.

When you’re done, you’ll have a toolkit of ways to identify and overcome the barriers journalists face when reporting on science-related topics.”

This paid Poynter course is available here. Editors and staff should contact the Gazette editor-in-chief for access to the course.
