The NPC Journalism Institute is announcing its Data-Powered Journalism Series. The Institute will be hosting a progressive series of training sessions in the coming weeks on how spreadsheets and databases can add a valuable new dimension to Washington stories.
The sessions will be taught by David Donald , data editor at the Center for Public Integrity, and former training director for Investigative Reporters and Editors and the National Institute for Computer-Assisted Reporting.
Sign up now to master the skills that take you beyond great interviewing and document digging. The sessions will be divided into three classes, starting in late May. Admission is $5 for members per class, $25 for non-members per class. Space is limited, so please reserve early. This session will start at 9:00 a.m. and end at 12:00 p.m.
Part III: Access the power
"Database managers" might sound like the guys who tell you to clean out your email inbox. But they’re not. Relational databases allow you to make connections in data that would never be visible sifting through documents or talking to experts. With databases like Access you can master some of the huge datasets where the secrets of governments, companies and candidates are hidden. Participation requires completing the advanced Excel class, or demonstrated ability with Excel, at the discretion of the instructor.
