Workshop

Media training: Stats essentials for math-averse reporters

Summary:

“Many journalists lack confidence when including numbers in their reporting, or they fear misrepresenting the data when it comes to covering facts and figures, studies, or technical reports. This free, one-hour “crash course”—designed for reporters who cover science, health, or environment issues but lack statistics or data training—aims to take the stress out of reporting on the numbers that could be crucial to your next story.” The webinar will be led by Tori Espensen and Emily Mueller, both trained scientists and science communicators. Upcoming dates in 2024 include June 25 and October 24.
