Wenli Gao, communication, sociology, and anthropology librarian at UH Libraries, and Lindita Camaj, PhD, assistant professor in journalism and mass communication at the UH Valenti School of Communication, received a grant for their project titled “Storytelling with Data: A Resource Guide for Data Journalism.” The purpose of the project is to create a centralized place where journalism students learn basics of data journalism, from locating data sources and understanding data, to visualizing and displaying data. Students in journalism programs nationwide and journalist practitioners can use this resource to get started with data journalism, or sharpen their knowledge of data journalism. In the long run, this resource will prepare next-generation journalists to analyze complex data, tell powerful stories, and effectively communicate these stories to various audiences.
