“This collaboration between Temple and IRE is a unique and exciting opportunity for our students, our faculty and for the Philadelphia journalism community we help support,” said Dean David Boardman, who is a former president of IRE. “There is no more important training organization in journalism than IRE.”
Faculty members and staff members have been partcipating on the conference planning committee and will be attending. A group of Temple students will also be selected to participate as volunteers.
The best in the business will gather for more than 150 panels, hands-on classes and special presentations about covering business, public safety, government, health care, education, the military, the environment and other key beats. Speakers will share strategies for locating documents and gaining access to public records, finding the best stories and managing investigations. Join the discussion about how to practice investigative journalism in print, broadcast, Web and alternative newsroom models.
Investigative Reporters and Editors is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of investigative reporting. IRE was formed in 1975 to create a forum in which journalists throughout the world could help each other by sharing story ideas, newsgathering techniques and news sources.
