Week Eight

This weeks workshop was all about data. I’m so happy that we addressing the area of data journalism as it feels like this could be a real impact, already and even more in the future, on journalism. Having had a workshop with Paul Bradshaw for another module, it was also great to put some of the skills into practice. Here is some of what we did.

This has been one of the workshops I have most enjoyed. Data allows us to do so much in the world of journalism and I hope this is not the last time I try my hand at it.
