The main objective of the course is to provide students with the basic knowledge on data journalism and equip them with the skills for usage of various kinds of data in journalistic reporting and writing. Students will obtain practical competences for collecting, cleaning, analysing, interpreting and visualising the collected data. They will gain knowledge and use the basic tools for statistical analysis of data, for data enquiries and for data visualisation. Students will also gain knowledge on how to use data to make journalistic stories and how to present them in a reader-friendly manner. Besides practical competencies this course will give them understanding of theoretical and epistemological dilemmas emerging from increased quantities of available data and processes of quantification (i.e. Big Data society), which will enable them to critically evaluate some of the key topics in the wider field of research.
