Virtual IRE Workshop: Introduction to Data Journalism


Jun 3, 2021




Teresa Shaak



We’re bringing renowned IRE training to you. At no charge for PNA members!

This half-day workshop for beginning data journalists will include two parts.  We’ll begin with a one-hour overview of key data journalism tools, methods and strategies for total beginners looking to produce investigative or beat stories.  The rest of the afternoon features a hands-on, three-plus-hour introduction to using spreadsheets to interview a dataset.  Covered will be basic navigation, best practices for analysis projects, sorting, filtering, functions and pivot tables. This will be taught in Google Sheets, so attendees must have a free Google account to participate.

This half day virtual workshop is scheduled to begin promptly at 1 p.m., eastern time, and conclude by 5:30 p.m.

Registrants must have both a computer and audio/phone in order to participate.

There is no cost for PNA members.  Non-member fee: $25.
