I am teaching a small module on data journalism to Massey University’s Post Graduate Diploma in Journalism Course.

This is a fairly practical module. My aim is that students will know where to find data about New Zealand and will be able to acquire, analyse and tell a story using that data.

Workbench Data will be the primary tool used to do this - in it’s own words it enables one too:

Scrape, clean, combine and analyze data without code

The lecture notes for the course are below.
