Crowdfunding – new examples
Crowdfunding has been praised as a new revelation to fund independent, thorough journalism. Sometimes it works. Hear about recent projects: what worked, what did not work – and what went splendidly.

Using hypotheses: the core of the investigative method
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.

Mastering timelines: the royal road to a successful project
In Story-Based Inquiry, the hypothesis accounts for the principal event. But something must have happened first, to make that event possible. And after the event occurs, there will be further events and consequences. In this session participants will learn how to use their imaginations to construct a hypothetical chain of events (timeline), which can be used to guide investigators toward sources and documents with a high degree of accuracy.
