This course will give participants an opportunity to brush up on core data skills and combine them with advanced internet research for rich, in-depth investigations.
Drawing from real life examples and scenarios, this course will guide attendees from hypothesis to story, including sections on working with spreadsheets, scraping and importing data, investigating people and companies and the latest tools and techniques.
The data is rarely the story in itself. This weekend will help you find the human face to add impact and relevance.
This two-day wokshop will be divided into half-day sections designed to take you through the steps to build a lead into a full investigative story.
Section 1 – Finding the lead in the data
Section 2 – From Hypothesis to Data
Section 3 – Putting the flesh on the bones
Section 4 – Putting it all together and finding the narrative
