Crash Course: Science Essentials for Local Reporters

SciLine has helped thousands of journalists add small but important doses of science to their local news stories. From 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. MT on Tuesday, August 8, they’re offering a free one-hour “crash course” — designed specifically for local and general assignment print, radio, and TV reporters — to teach basic principles about how science works and ways it can be used to strengthen virtually any news story.

Former longtime Washington Post science reporter Rick Weiss and Ph.D. neuroscientist Dr. Tori Fosheim will together lay out key do’s, don’ts, and pitfalls to watch for when including science in your news reporting. Forty-five minutes of interactive teaching will be followed by a 15-min open Q&A.
