How to build a collaborative investigation from scratch

  • Event: 2019 IRE Conference

  • Date/Time: Thursday, Jun. 13 at 2:30pm
  • Location: Meyerland
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

With projects like Documenting Hate and Electionland, ProPublica has developed large collaborations with other newsrooms by using a central database. And now you, too, can launch this type of database-focused project, even without a developer. Find out about free tools ProPublica is creating to make it possible to create a crowd-powered investigation and database, and learn tips and best practices on crowdsourcing and collaborative investigations. 

We'll talk about ProPublica's approach to crowd-powered, collaborative investigations and our free tools to allow any newsroom to set up this type of project.

This session is sponsored by the Knight Foundation. IRE retains control of content, including the topic and speaker selection, for all conference sessions.
