IRE’s annual data journalism conference will be held virtually this year on March 3-5, 2021.
Hands-on data skills will be taught via on-demand, pre-recorded videos led by IRE trainers, so that anyone can learn at their own pace. There will be beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons so attendees can jump in at their current skill level. We’ll offer sessions in spreadsheets, SQL, programming and data viz.
To complement the on-demand data training, we plan to offer multiple office hours for attendees to get one-on-one help with any data skill or help setting up their computers for data work. Volunteer to help with office hours here by Feb. 10. Sign up coming soon for those who want to get help through office hours.
It wouldn’t be NICAR without the fun, community-building events! We plan to have some fun sessions that have nothing to do with data or journalism so you can relax and socialize with your fellow NICARians.
All attendees will receive access to the conference site, including hands-on classes and live session recordings, for a year afterward.
Join IRE staff for a preview of #NICAR21 on Feb. 8. IRE members and potential members are welcome.
