Taking students from absolute beginner to an advanced investigation is an intense learning process for all involved. Three investigative journalists who teach graduate and undergraduate investigative journalism courses will discuss the process and show examples of student investigations. We’ll discuss how to mentor students through tricky logistical, legal and ethical issues, how to handle problems that can arise from student investigations and how best to solve them. Teaching the next generation of investigative journalists is crucial to pass on the skills necessary to produce in-depth, challenging reporting. As newsrooms cut experienced staff, universities are becoming the place where students increasingly go to find these skills.
