Online Master Class: Editing & bulletproofing the data story

September 30 @ 1:00 PM

Managing a data project presents challenges for any editor.

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.
