Data Journalism: What's a Two-Year College to Do?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Nancy Kaplan-Biegel has made it her mission over the past several years to educate herself about data journalism, taking several MOOCs on the topic, including one recently offered through the Journalism and Media Studies Centre from the University of Hong Kong. While no expert (and, in fact, a typical math-a-phobe), she has nonetheless built data journalism assignments into several of her courses.

Workshop participants will leave with an introduction to several key data journalism skills (bring your laptop!) and an out-of-the-box data journalism unit to take home. We will also discuss why data journalism is so important and brainstorm additional ways we can teach this important skill set. Can't attend? Find workshop materials at the Data Journalism Workshop website. The PowerPoint presentation is available on this Sched site.
