Smart use of data is a key ingredient to powerful education reporting on issues from achievement gaps and the digital divide to funding inequities and college completion rates. Ready to take your data skills and savvy to a new level? EWA is here to help.
Apply now for the next Diving Into Data Workshop. Participants will receive intensive, hands-on training from our data coaches—veteran journalists skilled at analyzing and reporting with education 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. You’ll learn Excel, SQL or R and you can use K-12 or higher ed data — or both.
This year, we’re going virtual. The training will be delivered in four half-day sessions on October 12-13 and October 19-20. And it’s free to EWA member journalists. (If you’re not a member, apply today.)
Space is limited for this competitive program. Applicants must provide a letter of recommendation from their editor. (Email it to data (at) ewa.org.) Also, we highly recommend that participants plan to use two screens for the workshop. The deadline to apply is September 24.
So, what are you waiting for?
