Crash Courses

SciLine periodically hosts free training sessions—typically just an hour each—designed to quickly and efficiently convey practical tips for strengthening your stories with research-backed evidence.

What Crash Courses Offer Journalists

Even if your story is not “about” science or an experimental finding, it can often be enhanced by including relevant research findings or insights.

Chemists can address local industrial accidents; hydrologists can clarify farm irrigation issues; psychologists can enhance human interest stories.

Many local and general assignment reporters tell us they feel unqualified to talk to scientists or assess science-based information in their reporting.

Crash courses are designed to teach easily adopted skills and tips that can increase your confidence using science-based sources and resources.
