This workshop is intended to empower participants with the tools for research-based investigations. Participants will learn the basic steps of an amateur investigation, from formulating initial questions and identifying involved parties, to basic interviewing techniques and journalistic etiquette. Participants will be introduced to use a set of online tools and databases geared toward locating documents relevant to their investigation. Finally, we will conduct a group inquiry and pool resources toward an investigation of our own. No previous experience required. Laptop required.
