We are pleased to announce the fourth part of our webinar series on April 16th.
The webinar was scheduled for March already. But unfortunately we had to postpone it due to different reasons.
Furthermore this time the event will start later on the day. We hope the new timing fits better in with your timetables.
This time, we will focus on global data, and the webinar will be presented by data expert Nicolas Kayser-Bril. He is a data journalism expert (http://blog.nkb.fr/) and the co-founder of Journalism++ (http://www.jplusplus.org/).
The webinar will be presented on April 16th, 6 pm to 7 pm CET. We will start on time.
Working with data is no longer a niche skill, but rather one that is mandatory for all. The webinars are for journalists and researchers who want to learn more about using data with an interest in India, China, EU/Germany and/or global trends. All other alumni are warmly welcome to register, if the webinars suit your interests.
4 of the 5 webinars have a geographical focus: EU/Germany, India, China and global trends. These webinars will focus on the following topics: economy, development, labor, education, social affairs and health. The 5th webinar has a practical approach on how to analyze and present/visualize data.
Our fourth webinar is presented by data expert Nicolas Kayser-Bril. He will talk about global data:
• Large data aggregators: World Bank, U.N. and some specific examples of what they have (e.g. the UN's Comtrade)
• The inherent limitations on data quality
• Alternatives to government data for worldwide datasets
Do you miss any issues?
Please send us your input and/or specific questions.
The webinar will take 1 hour. After the presentation by Nicolas (40 minutes), we will have a Q&A session (20 minutes). We will take questions during the presentation by Nicolas as well.
You will receive information in advance on how to participate in the webinar. It is really easy. No special software is needed, just an internet connection.
Our series will continue in May with a webinar on tools for data management, analysis and visualization. It will be the last webinar of our series.
