According to IRE's website, the organization "is a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of investigative reporting. IRE was formed in 1975 to create a forum in which journalists throughout the world could help each other by sharing story ideas, newsgathering techniques and news sources.
IRE provides members access to thousands of reporting tip sheets and other materials through its resource center and hosts conferences and specialized training throughout the country. Programs of IRE include the National Institute for Computer Assisted Reporting and DocumentCloud."
This year’s Short Course—“21st Century Journalism: Back to Basics For A Millennial Career”—is geared to solidify the journalism foundation for the fellows, while honing their skills and opening their minds to charting a unique journalism career.
