Elevate Your Journalism by Collaborating
July 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Traditionally, news organizations competed to get the scoop. But collaborations among news organizations have become far more common in recent years. As budgets continue to tighten, newsrooms are looking for ways to do more than just react to news as it happens. This session will examine the benefits and even a few pitfalls of news collaborations. During this session, you’ll learn how to scrape data from web pages and PDFs and into a spreadsheet format. You also will learn how to visualize the data using the free Flourish.studio tool. Participants will get a handout with links to the tools, exercises, examples and data to practice with.
Presenter(s): Jean Hodges, Senior Director of news culture and communication for Gannett
