Teaching Data and Computational Journalism - Report Launch at NICAR 2016
We are pleased to announce the launch of "Teaching Data and Computational Journalism" at this year's NICAR conference in Denver.
This report is the culmination of a year-long collaboration between researchers at Columbia and Stanford that was funded by the Knight Foundation.
We have surveyed the level of instruction in data and computational skills at US journalism schools, observed classes, and interviewed dozens of data journalists and journalism instructors to better understand the pedagogical landscape and best practices in this field. The report also offers a set of model curricula to assist journalism educators in developing broader course offerings in data and computation.
So if you will be at NICAR this year, please come out on Saturday, March 12th at 6pm to pick up a hard copy of our report and enjoy a few drinks on us. This event will be held at the conference hotel, the Denver Marriott City Center, in Colorado G-J, located on lower level 2.
