Worth 1,000 Words: Using Data to Create Narratives

All Levels | In this course, we’ll look at all sorts of data—from baseball stats to figures showing COVID-19 rates to financial info—to examine the storytelling possibilities that data offers. What insights, for example, might looking at gross domestic product statistics reveal? Is it RBI or RBIs? How can a better understanding of data in turn lead to a better understanding of one’s subject matter? We’ll examine data as a group, read data-centric writing, and work on projects of our own.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
