Covering Science webinar

14 January 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Online Media Campus, in conjunction with SciLine – a free, nonprofit service for journalists – is offering a one-hour training webinar for journalists, editors and others in news publishing who wish to become more comfortable covering science-related topics.

The COVID-19 pandemic has become an all-hands-on-deck story, requiring many in the news business with little or no science backgrounds to embrace the health and science beat. The COVID story will continue to dominate in the new year. But even beyond COVID, many local stories can be strengthened by inclusion of scientific expertise and research-based context. This training webinar will cover such topics as:

• How does science work and what are common pitfalls to avoid when covering scientific findings?
• What are the major types of scientific studies and the inherent weaknesses of each to be aware of?
• How to extract the essentials from a scientific journal article.
• How to find a scientist source, and best practices for science-related interviews.
