Sheila Coronel – leading trainer at the 2011 Summer School of Investigative Reporting

This year’s Summer School (August 21st to 27th, in Opatija, Croatia) will be led by Sheila Coronel, Director and Professor of Professional Practice at Colombia University’s Toni Stabile Center for Investigative Journalism.

The Summer School will see participants work in groups on story ideas and Professor Coronel will work with all of them on their story proposals.

As she explains: “This class is a crash course on the techniques of investigative reporting. You’ll learn what makes investigative reporting different from other types of journalism.
We’ll walk through developing story ideas, finding the investigative edge in your stories, conducting research and uncovering information that others want to keep hidden or secret.”
