Finding Stories with Data – Hands-On
You may already know something about data journalism, but are unsure how to start an actual story.
In these sessions we will delve into some real data, looking for a real story, starting with an idea, downloading the data, cleaning it, exploring it, and finding the leads to stories in it –using the methods you would need in a data-led enquiry, and in the order you would use them.
Don’t worry if you’ve never used these techniques before – we will have time to stop and discuss them in detail as we go.
You might want to go to Data Journalism – Google Sheets – Hands-on (Wed 29 June) instead to practise working with datasets from the ground up. You do not need to do both Data Journalism-Google Sheet and Finding Stories in Data. Select one only.
Own laptop required.
