NCTJ partners with Google News Initiative on verification, visualisation and innovative ideas seminar

The NCTJ has partnered with Google News Initiative to offer a one-day digital journalism tools seminar, free for journalists and journalism educators.

Hosted by Google in London on Wednesday, 15 May, the day will provide an introduction to advanced search and verification skills using essential tools from Google and beyond.

Attendees will also learn how to find and clean local police data, using it to create an interactive map suitable for embedding in crime stories.

A simple data visualisation session from Flourish will show attendees how to create elegant interactives without coding, from emoji maps and photo sliders to animated charts.

The seminar will also explore a variety of Google tools to help with finding stories, from generating ideas, monitoring topics, finding new angels and broadening interview sources.

This free event is limited to journalists and journalism educators, who can RSVP here.
