We often hear that our analyses should “tell a story,” but how can data scientists become better storytellers? Analytical training emphasizes technical skills. Our familiarity with the complexities of our data can discourage us from simple storylines and clear narratives. In contrast, data journalists are motivated by stories first and can model for us how to tell better stories with data.

During this session, we will look to cutting edge examples of data journalism and examine what makes these data stories effective. Attendees will leave with a refined understanding of what a data “product” should be and will learn how to apply this understanding to work in their context using available tools.
