Concordia Journalism: Giuseppe Valiante on Basic Economics for Journalists
November 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
About this Event
The Department of Journalism at Concordia University invites you to its third skills workshop of the semester!
Giuseppe Valiante will talk about basic economics for journalists and how journalists can use an economic lens to understand the world and tell better stories. This is not a workshop exclusively for business reporters or one that will focus on business reporting. Instead, this workshop will expose you to the basic economic principles that influence the way humans behave so you can ask better questions and produce enterprising stories that stand out from the noise. Regardless of your politics or what economic system you prefer, this workshop will introduce concepts to you that will make you think differently.
This workshop will be held online via Zoom and recorded for our educational database. The Zoom link will be emailed to all registered attendees the day before the event. Spaces are limited and registration is mandatory to attend.
