The Journalism and Media Studies Centre at the University of Hong Kong will launch a five-week course on the fundamentals of data journalism starting 28 March, in partnership with Google and top news organisations in Asia.


Taught by a panel of experts on data journalism from New York City, San Francisco, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Shanghai, the course will introduce the latest tools in data acquisition, analysis, interpretation and visualisation. Students will also learn how to integrate these skills to tell compelling stories.


Regional newsroom partners for the course include IndiaSpend (India), Malaysiakini (Malaysia), KataData (Indonesia), Caixin (China) and DataLEADS (India).


Targeting journalists of all levels of experience, students and anyone with an interest in data journalism, the course will also feature case studies from newsrooms in Asia and data stories by leading international media organisations.


Students can earn a free certificate for the course by completing all required assignments. Those who complete the course project will get an exclusive chance to showcase their work on our website as well as receive expert critique by instructors.
