We’ve been training journalists for years and decided it was time to share some of that knowledge with college instructors to help prepare the next generation of journalists. With that in mind, we created NICAR Courses – everything instructors need to teach an introduction to data journalism using spreadsheets.

This Excel module will cover two to three weeks of class and materials include teaching guides, exercises, more than 15 datasets and training tips. Students will get hands-on experience working with real-life examples of how to find stories in data.
