IRE and SPJ, with funding from the SDX Foundation, have joined forces to offer these fast-paced workshops throughout the United States and show how improved reporting skills, often aided by the employment of open-records laws, can result in top-notch journalism. A small team of expert instructors will run the workshops, which will bring together IRE's expertise at journalism training and SPJ's leadership on FOI issues. Program materials will include a copy of SPJ's "Open Doors," a recently published guide for using FOI laws and some of the best IRE tipsheets on beat coverage.The registration fee includes a 6-month membership in IRE and SPJ.
This workshop is being held in conjunction with the Oregon SPJ chapter.
