Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!


As more and more data is generated in the digital age and audiences are increasingly looking to journalists to interpret and identify the significance of trends and insights from data, it's imperative that journalists understand and grow their data literacy. 

Join GA and The Walkley Foundation for an exclusive one-hour lunchtime masterclass on communicating with data to tell an engaging story.

Learn from a data visualisation expert on basic principles of data visualisation, best practice for choosing the right data visualisation and how to engage with and communicate data through a mix of written and visual content. You'll walk away with a better understanding of data analysis, a greater ability to identify the data you're looking for, how you can convey the right message from a data set and how to avoid overcomplicated or confusing infographics.

This event is separately ticketed from the main conference: register on the General Assembly site. Tickets $20.
