WORKSHOP ON OPEN DATA JOURNALISM ON THE OCCASION OF WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY 2016HOW TO USE OPEN DATA TO YOUR ADVANTAGE IN REPORTING?
BACKGROUNDThe concept of open data has been around for many years, promising to herald in greater transpar-ency by making data freely and easily accessible online from government spending and budget to environmental pollution index and school drop-out rates. However, the availability of reliable data, trained analysts, and data that is useful for day-to-day journalism still has a lot of room for improve-ment. Many still see data as the same as statistics and hence open data journalism must requires great statistical skills and the knowledge to use specialize software. Furthermore, journalists often feel that data are not being published at a fast enough rate for it to be news worthy. At the same time, parties with the resources to publish data including governments, are often not publishing until being pressured. Yet, there are examples from The Guardian and Propublica which produced highly infor-mative and innovative journalism in a combination of using freedom of information laws and working collaborative teams consisting of people with different skills sets. In the end of the day, journalists will use all means available to them including open data resources. This workshop is designed to create awareness of the kind of open data resources that is currently available which could help journalists do their work better.
OBJECTIVES To raise awareness of the possiblities of open data as sources in doing journalism To be familiar with different open data platforms and resources available in the region To be able to use simple tools to use open data in journalism To promote the inclusion of open data in journalistic teaching
