Join Andrew Tran, a data journalist at the CT Mirror, for a two-hour workshop on using data in your reporting.
Tran is a data editor for TrendCT.org at The Connecticut Mirror. Previously, he was a data producer for The Boston Globe Data Desk and contributed to the paper’s Pulitzer Prize award-winning coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings and aftermath. Prior to joining the Globe in 2011, he was an online producer at The Virginian-Pilot and a staff writer at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. He’s a Metpro Fellow, a Chips Quinn Scholar, and a graduate of the University of Texas.
The workshop will be hosted at Southern Connecticut State University from 1 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday May 27. The event will be in Morrill 205. (That’s building 8 on the campus map, found here. Free parking is available in the Fitch Street Garage – building 4 on the campus map.)
Computers will be provided, but it’s recommended you bring your own laptop with Microsoft Excel and Google Refine installed. Come prepared with a dataset from your beat to work on during the workshop.

Program hosted by the SCSU Journalism Department and CTSPJ.
