What is your grade suggestion for data journalism course?
I think that a proposal for data journalism course can be:
Introduction to Computational Journalism
Kinds of data and database structure
Data journalism in the newsroom
User-friendly tools for data journalism
Finding data to support stories
Finding story ideas with data analysis
Dealing with messy data
Telling stories with visualisation, Maps and Timelines
interactive experiences with data
Ethics of data
Transparency, Trust and Credibility
But, it can be with a more technological approach, then, I would suggest contents on fields Automated/Robot Journalism; Data Mining News and Social Media; News Analytics, Metrics and Impact; Open Data, Civic Data, and APIs; Personalization and Recommendation; Prediction and Simulation in the News; Sensor and Drone Journalism and, Tools, Platforms and Languages by Journalists or for Journalists; Transparency, Trust and Credibility.
