Spreadsheet journalism, also known as data journalism or computer-assisted reporting, is catching fire across Europe, yielding evidence-based news and investigations that were not possible in the absence of data mining skills.

This practical and bespoke one-day workshop is designed for journalists who seek a gentle introduction into data journalism. You’ll learn how to ‘interview’ digital sources using the power of Excel, find patterns in data that lead to clues for deeper digging, how to report numbers and produce evidence-based reporting. We have conspired to get you over the technical hump in a day.

What you will cover:

— Finding data sets, quick and easy, on any website
— Asking journalistic questions from a dataset
— You’ll learn maths for journalists, as well as what numbers to report and traps to avoid
— Cleaning and formatting dirty data, and curating your own spreadsheet reporting
— Exploring patterns in datasets
— Mining data with pivot tables
— How to spot red flags, discover, ask and negotiate for data
— You will discover correlations and learn how to verify whether one fact influences another.
