Data Journalism

25 May 2021


As more data is collected by private and public organisations, the stories we can tell with it expand as well. Data literacy and the ability to tell stories with data has become a crucial part of journalism and the reporting process. Little points of information that are often not relevant in a single instance, can be massively important when viewed from the right angle and combined with the appropriate context. Now that the information is abundant, processing that is more important.

This webinar by WAN-IFRA, supported by Learn with Facebook Journalism Project aim to help Indian journalists in updating their skills to suit the new working conditions and challenges. Participants will gain insights about analysing and communicating data to improve visualisations to tell ways to improve their stories.
