The International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and PROTO are hosting a one-day workshop focused on health reporting in New Delhi on February 16, 2019. The workshop will feature a training session on digital tools and how to better incorporate data into health reporting led by ICFJ Knight Fellow and PROTO Producer, Sanjit Oberai. The workshop will also include panel discussions with ICFJ’s former Global Health Reporting Contest winners, PROTO team members, and ICFJ's India-based Knight International Journalism Fellows. This is a great opportunity for journalists to explore the challenges and solutions in covering health issues in India and learn new tools/techniques to improve their health reporting skills.
The workshop is open to journalists in New Delhi who specialize in health reporting or are interested in covering more health topics. Participants will be able to network with local journalists, media consultants, and other experts in health reporting.
This workshop’s training session will provide hands-on training with data journalism tools. Participants will learn how to scrape data from websites and PDFs using tools like Tabula and Table Capture. Participants will also be shown how to visualize the information and translate it into charts and graphs using online tools like Datawrapper or Infogram.
NOTE: For best results, be sure to bring a laptop to follow along with the trainers.
