IRE Commons - Students' roundtable (IRE Commons sponsored by Facebook)
This is a roundtable for students to have an honest, off-the-record discussion on the challenges of being a student journalist. Some of the topics that might be brought up include: learning to set aside your personal biases, gaining access to data and documents, and backlash from your university for unfavorable coverage.
