Data mining isn’t just for investigative journalists and long-form projects. In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn how to find data and research that will support story development and help beat writers on daily stories. MaryJo Webster, adjunct lecturer at the University of Minnesota and computer-assisted reporting editor for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, will talk about public record requests and how to find the data you need, and how best to analyze and interpret it. Pre-registration on members.jaws.org is required.
