You’ve done all the data crunching and reporting, now it’s time to sit down and explain how you did it. Feeling overwhelmed by too many information and worried nobody would read it? We’ve all been there. Some of us call it the “nerd box”, but we certainly hope the methodology section could reach beyond nerds. In this panel, a few experienced data journalists will talk about their approach to explaining the methodology and how we can improve to make it better. Topics we’ll touch on include: How to assure the visibility of important caveats and avoid confusion? How to set realistic expectation on readers’ data literacy? How to accommodate readers with different levels of interest? Is there any other way to describe methodology other than lengthy text? How to include the methodology for non-digital mediums like broadcast, radio, print or even social media? Join us for a rewarding discussion.
