The Investigative Journalism Workshop (IJW)...

Michael Schmidt, former investigative journalist at the Saturday Star and Sunday Times, now with frayintermedia, is talking to the workshop about general interviewing techniques versus forensic interviewing techniques.

We're learning about how to scrutinize sources, how to interview witnesses, as well as how to handle interviews with hostile or traumatized people.

The IJW collaborates with a number of partners with a wealth of local and international experience in investigative journalism and training.

These, notably, are the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism (IAJ) in Johannesburg, the Centre for Investigative Journalism (CJI) in London, Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) in the US and the Forum for African Investigative Reporters (FAIR).
