    Course Outline

    The Centre for Investigative Journalism will be organising an introductory two-day seminar on investigative journalism in Dublin. The venue has kindly been provided by the Dublin Institute of Technology.

    The programme includes data journalism using Excel and Google Fusion tables, where to look for financial documents and how to understand company accounts, digital security for journalists and a panel discussion. We will be working in a computer lab, so laptops are not required.

    The programme is based on our very successful Investigative Journalism Summer School in London which is now in its 10th year. Having trained over a 1000 journalists, NGO researchers and students from over 35 countries, we are running a pilot training initiative in Dublin in response to requests from Irish journalists and freelancers who have attended our Summer School here in London.
