In this series of four short workshops, Barbara Gray, the former director of news research at the New York Times, will guide you through the most accessible techniques for investigating people, finding news and verifying the facts online.

  • Information Gathering With Social Media. Social media can reveal a lot about people and about emerging situations. Learn to use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social networks to find sources and user-generated content, and to add detail to your reporting, especially during breaking news.

  • Verify or Die. Never get it wrong. Barbara will give you her checklist of research tips and techniques to fact-check your own work, verify your reporting and avoid embarrassing errors.
