Kristen Fischer - Going Deeper: How to Ask Better Questions
Guest: NAIWE’s Journalism Expert Kristen Fischer
Journalists have to guide an interview, and how they do it can make or break a story. In this webinar, we’ll explore different tactics for asking questions that receive more detailed responses and produce better sound bites. Come prepared with one example of a great question you’ve asked in the past, and one that you thought was great yet fell flat.
Here’s what you can expect to learn in this class:
- What’s a better question
- What a better question can give you
- What better questions require
- How to go beyond the 5Ws and H
- Questions to ask when crafting questions
Duration: 53 minutes
