The Institute for Investigative Journalism’s practical solutions course brings together a cross-disciplinary team in an innovative multidisciplinary summer course in problem-solving and knowledge mobilization.

The course’s current focus is the Tainted Water investigation, which revealed that levels of lead in older homes in many major Canadian cities are comparable to or higher than those in Flint, Michigan, at the height of the crisis there. Our investigation found that smaller communities are more likely affected.

In a summer practicum, a team of students from departments such as civil engineering, computer sciences, public policy, business and other areas are invited to propose and test solutions to assist smaller communities, building on the work of journalists who investigated these issues.

This course runs from Monday June 1 to Friday June 5. Sessions take place from 9 am to 3 pm daily, with a break for lunch.

Please note there is a nominal cost to take part, but organizers request that potential participants submit a letter of interest before being accepted.
