Using hypotheses: the core of the investigative method

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In Story-Based Inquiry, an investigation begins with a hypothesis. This is an answer to the question “What do you think that happened?” In this session participants will learn to explore possible story angles, and to rephrase them as concrete events that can be verified. Knowing what you are looking for increases your chances of discovering it. A hypothesis also makes it easier to co-operate in a team and to “sell” an idea to editors or clients.
