The National Student Investigative Reporting Network (NSIRN): Call for Project Team members. (3rd and 4th year students)

We have an exciting opportunity for senior students. This year Mount Royal joined the National Student Investigative Reporting Network, which is hosted and facilitated by the Institute for Investigative Reporting at Concordia University, Montreal.

We are looking for three more student members to join our reporting team. Students will use advanced research methods to investigate a health issue of public interest in Calgary and Alberta and be part of a national reporting team of students from the University of British Columbia, Mount Royal University, University of Regina, Humber College, Ryerson University, Carleton University, Concordia University and University of King’s College.

You are a highly dependable student who can meet deadlines.  You can sign a confidentiality form and not speak of the project outside the reporting team. You will need to be available to Skype In for a weekly class every Thursday from 5 pm to 7:30 pm MT and undertake weekly reporting assignments. You will need to do substantial reading on the investigative topic and be available Feb 22 to 24, 2019. You can receive 3 credits as this reporting will be considered a directed reading course or Advanced Reporting II.

Deadline: Nov 1

Please send an expression of interest (why you’d like to participate) and a resume to Associate Professor Janice Paskey at jpaskey@mtroyal.ca with email subject line NSIRN.
