MediaNumeric Training Course “Data-Driven Journalism, Creative Storytelling & Fact-Checking​”: The 2nd call for applications is open! 

MediaNumeric is an Erasmus+ collaborative project that provides training resources and courses to train the new generation of journalists to work with big data and fight misinformation. The call for applications for the second training session which will take place in The Hague is now open. 

The MediaNumeric training course

The MediaNumeric Training Course will provide students with a unique opportunity to learn the basics of data journalism and storytelling through a set of theoretical and practical courses spanning data extraction methods, data analysis and visualisation, as well as crafting stories based around data. The course will also look at the growing area of fact checking and tracking the spread of misinformation around the world. Students will work with professionals who will guide you through the learning process, show you how they approach data-specific tasks, and will support you and your classmates in investigating a case study in which you will put the skills they learn into action. The course will offer students the theoretical know-how, tools and skills needed to take on data-driven journalism and storytelling as well as fact checking, and all of the creative and professional opportunities it offers.
