    2020 Data Bootcamp for Educators July (Online)

    UPDATE 5/26

    As the coronavirus pandemic continues, it has become clear that the safest option for our members and trainers is to move this bootcamp online.

    Supported by Lumina Foundation and Newhouse School of Journalism at Syracuse University. Special thanks to Loyola University Chicago for their work leading up to the workshop. 

    In these four and a half day bootcamps, educators will receive hands-on training on spreadsheet and database skills, the same skills taught at IRE’s popular Data Journalism Bootcamps, with a focus on learning how to teach these tools in a college setting.

    Topics include building data lessons into existing coursework, creating syllabi for data journalism courses, and building hands-on teaching skills. Attendees will receive IRE’s training materials and data, which can be used in their classes.

    The bootcamps will be taught by IRE’s experienced trainers and a college-level data journalism professor. The bootcamps are open to anyone teaching journalism at a college or university, regardless of academic title.
