2020 Data Bootcamp for Educators - Loyola

Supported by Lumina Foundation and Newhouse School of Journalism at Syracuse University

In these four and a half day bootcamps, educators will receive hands-on training on spreadsheet and database skills, the same skills taught at IRE’s popular Data Journalism Bootcamps, with a focus on learning how to teach these tools in a college setting.

Topics include building data lessons into existing coursework, creating syllabi for data journalism courses, and building hands-on teaching skills. Attendees will receive IRE’s training materials and data, which can be used in their classes.

The bootcamps will be taught by IRE’s experienced trainers and a college-level data journalism professor. The bootcamps are open to anyone teaching journalism at a college or university, regardless of academic title.
