In this half-day workshop by Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), you'll get hands-on experience working with data to help you beat the competition in any market. You’ll come away with plenty of quick-hit story ideas and also learn about publicly available databases that you can download and analyze on deadline. We'll show you easy ways to dig a little deeper and ask the right questions, so that you can stand out from your competitors even in breaking news coverage. 

We'll walk through a number of searchable databases currently available online and show you how you can download information into a spreadsheet so you can start analyzing data as soon as you leave the workshop. This workshop will focus on skills that are especially useful for broadcast journalists working with tight deadlines, but we welcome journalists and students of all backgrounds who will find this workshop useful. 

No previous data experience is required for this workshop. Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. Lunch will not be provided. Attendees are required to bring a laptop that has Microsoft Excel installed, and their laptop chargers. Workshop led by University of Missouri professor and former IRE executive director Mark Horvit.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the TEGNA Foundation.
