Pre-Dataharvest Train the Trainers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What is the best way to train data journalism skills? How do you plan a workshop that shares your knowledge and empowers reporters? When do you slow down and when do you accelerate your training pace? How do you deal with disruptive trainees or a mix of skill levels across the classroom? How do you charge someone with enthusiasm for learning while preparing them for hard work after a three-session jumpstart into a new coding language? And how can trainers keep a class engaged over a two-day bootcamp? Data Harvest is proud to host its first Train the Trainers course for data journalism teachers. Some of the world's best DDJ veteran educators will introduce their methods and share their wisdom accumulated while training worldwide over the past 20 years. The workshop brings together Helena Bengtsson, Jodi Upton, Brant Houston, Luuk Sengers, Nils Mulvad and Jonathan Stoneman. Participants will immerse in open discussions, hands-on demonstrations with live critique, and take home a unique workshop report collecting all presentations, tip sheets and used data.
