Find your own practical path to the world of data

The MediaNumeric Training Course will provide you with a unique opportunity to learn the basics of data journalism and storytelling through a set of theoretical and practical courses spanning data extraction methods, data analysis and visualization, as well as crafting stories based around data.
The course will also look at the growing area of fact checking and tracking the spread of misinformation around the world.
You will work with professionals who will guide you through the learning process, show you how they approach data-specific tasks, and will support you and your classmates in investigating a case study in which you will put the skills you learn into action.
The course will offer you the theoretical know-how, tools and skills needed to take on data-driven journalism and storytelling as well as fact checking, and all of the creative and professional opportunities it offers.
