Online Master Class: Editing & bulletproofing the data story

September 30 @ 1:00 PM

Current IRE membership required | September 30 from 1 to 4 pm (ET) | Tickets cost $35

Managing a data project presents challenges for any editor. No matter your comfort level with data, this session will give you the foundation you need to help make sure your reporters aren't running with scissors or spinning their wheels on data projects. Two veteran editors, Jennifer LaFleur of The Center for Public Integrity and Maud Beelman of the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, will guide you through the ins and outs of data journalism from an editor's point of view, including helping reporters find focus for their data stories, being skeptical of data and finding potential pitfalls. Don't miss this half-day workshop with Maud Beelman, Executive Editor of the Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, ASU and Jennifer LaFleur, Senior Editor at The Center for Public Integrity.
