MPs expenses, Wikileaks, the Panama Papers…some of the biggest stories of our time have been driven by data. A basic knowledge of spreadsheets, statistics and data visualisation is a must for any journalist who wants to be up to date with the new forms of reporting.
Participants will learn how to find stories behind the numbers and what are the best ways of communicating them.
This course is for journalists, students, content marketers and designers who want to learn the basics of data journalism to enhance their reporting skills or to create engaging content for their clients. You don’t need to have any previous experience with Excel or any other piece of software.
