The Knight Science Journalism fellowship program at MIT hosts fact-checking workshops that bring together copy editors and early-career journalists to learn about fact-checking, with a focus on science journalism. These workshops are part of a larger project to improve fact-checking in science journalism, run by KSJ @ MIT and funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. The workshops are not limited to editors and journalists who already cover science.
The project is an extension of the 2018 white paper “The State of Fact-Checking in Science Journalism,” also funded by Moore. For more details regarding the workshops, or if you have any questions about the application or the KSJ fact-checking project more broadly, please email Brooke Borel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
