Discover how searches, sources, statistics, and interview subjects can be a treasure trove of valuable material. Most of us tell stories everyday. At home, work, school and at social events. But sometimes, our stories are told in a more formal setting and often they require research and preparation. During his 35-year career, TV & Radio journalist Mike Killeen told a lot of stories. Join him and learn how to develop and analyze research methods and use that information for presentations, news stories, podcasts, research papers or a thesis. Guest speakers include BC's top investigative journalists.
