Living in an age informed by data means looking at the world through the lens of numbers, science, and statistics. But data doesn’t speak for itself and, as data journalists, our commitment is to convey information to the audience in an effective, trustworthy, and engaging way. So how can we deal with the complexity of the world around us when the ability to read numbers and graphs is not taught at school? In this session, we’ll analyse – with real-life examples – what works and what doesn’t in communicating data, in data visualization and in general. Do bring your own examples, thoughts and ideas to this open session.
