The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) will on November 14 - 16, 2018 bring together journalists from 12 media houses across Ghana for a three-day training on data journalism.
The training which will take place at Little Acre Hotel in Aburi aims at equipping journalists with the requisite tools, techniques and approaches to process, analyse and present big data in the most effective and concise manner.
The advancement in digital technology has made available a deluge of information on varied subjects. Information processing skill has, therefore, become a key requirement for the modern journalist who needs to structure out information from abundant data and tease out of them unique stories that capture most important and relevant issues.
The training workshop, which will be facilitated by international experts in the field of data journalism, will enable the participants to produce stories with picturesque and crafty visualisation that will be reader friendly to the increasingly busy news audience.
The training workshop is being organised in collaboration with DW Akademie.
