An(other Attempt at an) Intro to Data Journalism…

with 2 comments

I was pleased to be invited back to the University of Lincoln again yesterday to give a talk on data journalism to a couple of dozen or so journalism students…

I’ve posted a copy of the slides, as well as a set of annotated handouts onto slideshare, and to get a bump in my slideshare stats for meaningless page views, I’ve embedded the latter here too…

I was hoping to generate a copy of the slides (as images) embedded in a markdown version of the notes but couldn’t come up with a quick recipe for achieving that…

When I get a chance, it looks as if the easiest way will be to learn some VBA/Visual Basic for Applications macro scripting… So for example:

* How do I export powerpoint slide notes to individual text files?
* Using VBA To Export PowerPoint Slides To Images

If anyone beats me to it, I’m actually on a Mac, so from the looks of things on Stack Overflow, hacks will be required to get the VBA to actually work properly?

Quick Intro to Data Journalism, Sort Of…

Slides without commentary from a presentation I gave to undergrads on data journalism at the University of Lincoln yesterday…

My plan is to write some words around this deck, (or maybe even to record (and perhaps transcribe), some sort of narration…) just not right now…

I’m happy to give variants of this presentation elsewhere, if you can cover costs…
