[Medium] Sometimes a linear, written narrative is not the best way to express the news. Changes in technology and the growing access to large amounts of data have allowed journalists to develop new and effective ways of engaging readers with hard-to-fathom information. In an age of information overload, sometimes the best way to explain data is visually. This is a major component of reimagining journalistic storytelling in the digital age. Knowing when and how to represent data visually is now an integral part of the discipline. Students will learn basic visualization design and evaluation principles, as well as learn how to acquire, parse and analyze data sets.
