AIDM7410 Computational Journalism (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
This course aims to integrate knowledge and skills of journalism practice in the digital age, by covering computational journalism, news writing and reporting, and data-driven interactive storytelling. Special focus will be placed on the industrial production process of all aspects of techniques, including searching, collecting, analysing, interpreting, and visualizing data from various sources. The design and aesthetic components will also be covered. In additional to the traditional teaching learning activities, the course will also adopt the case study approach and perform reverse-engineering on classic and cutting-edged data-driven storytelling examples. Critical reflection on the overuse and abuse of big data and relevant ethical and legal controversies will be addressed as well. By the end of the semester, students are expected to produce a data-driven narrative project using computational methods.
