NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Watergate reporter Bob Woodward is scheduled to teach a journalism seminar at Yale University in the spring.

The 1965 Yale graduate told the Yale Daily News (http://bit.ly/19QjAmv ) for a story Thursday he hopes to teach students about the intensive and immersive reporting method he developed throughout his career.

Woodward and Washington Post colleague Carl Bernstein helped break the Watergate scandal in the 1970s that led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

He says there’s a place for “total immersive journalism” at a time when the media is defined by “impatience and speed.”

Woodward served as the Washington Post’s principal reporter covering the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and has written a dozen best-selling books. He is now associate editor at the newspaper.
