JOUR2076 Data Journalism (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
With vast amounts of data now openly accessible online, and the new infographic technologies available to visualize data, news media are increasingly making use of these valuable mines of data to source and produce their stories. Data journalism—the use of numerical data in the production and distribution of news—is an emerging subarea in our field. This course is not just about dull statistics or dreary numbers. The aim of the course is to examine data journalism at its core through case studies and hands-on practice of data skills. Throughout the course, students will learn how to conceptualize, design, visualize, and produce data-based news stories using visualization tools. Students will end the semester by creating an interactive piece of data journalism.
