Finding Stories in Data

When effectively analysed and presented in a clear and compelling way, data has the potential to create impact. Whether that’s changing perceptions, offering counterintuitive insights or prompting action, impact happens when data acts as the catalyst for change. And at the heart of driving change is the skill of finding and telling stories using, where relevant, compelling visualisations. No field is more experienced at finding and telling stories than journalism, and no field better at using data than data science. This set of modules looks at what these fields can learn from each other, in order to find and tell compelling stories with data. This is a free course, i.e. there are no fees for registering and attending it.
