Diving into Data Workshop 2019

University of Wisconsin-Madison

The education beat offers a wealth of data —  on student achievement, college admissions, teacher turnover, student discipline, K-12 and higher ed finance, and more. For data-savvy journalists, the story possibilities are limited only by their curiosity and skill level.

That’s where EWA comes in.

EWA is inviting applications for its popular Diving Into Data Workshop on July 26-29 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We will select 20 reporters to spend three days working on self-selected data projects and getting hands-on training in data analysis methods and tools such as Excel and the programming language R.

Participants will work with our team of data coaches—veteran journalists skilled at analyzing and reporting with data. The coaches will meet you where you are skills-wise and help you navigate data for a particular project while also building your overall data skills.

Please note: Applicants will need to provide a letter of recommendation from their editor. Also, participants will be required to bring their own laptops.
