Many newsrooms now have a digital, forensic or visual analysis team harnessing the power of data and technology to design investigations on diverse themes with original and innovative focuses. This panel will analyze examples of cutting-edge digital investigations and explore the role of such teams in today’s newsrooms asking questions like: what skills they need and how they ensure continuous training for their staff, how they collaborate with editors and reporters from across the newsroom, how they balance innovation with other interests in the newsroom, how they handle risk of vicarious trauma and what are their ethical boundaries.
