Craig Silverman, perhaps journalism's leading expert on accuracy and corrections, led a workshop for TBD and the American University School of Communication Oct. 28.

We appreciate that he let AU record the workshop for a podcast (link after the jump) and gave us his slides to share with the TBD staff and with members of our TBD Community Network.

We have another free workshop at AU's Wechsler Theater this weekend. Lauren Orsini, an AU master's degree graduate, will lead a session on WordPress tips and tricks from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Silverman is editor of RegretTheError.com, author of Regret the Error and writes the Regret the Error column for Columbia Journalism Review.

In connection with the workshop, I also posted on my blog Tips on verifying facts and ensuring accuracy.

Here are Silverman's resources to help journalists improve the accuracy of our work:
