King’s data school

The University of King’s College Summer School in Data Journalism has been training journalists in data techniques since 2008 and is the longest-running program of its kind in Canada.

In that time, we have seen dramatic changes in both the industry and the technologies data journalists use, and with the coming of generative AI tools, the changes are accelerating. This is creating new opportunities and new challenges for data journalists.

It is a very different world from the one in which the data school was born in 2008.

We take seriously our responsibility to continue providing the best value in data journalism training and we’ve decided now is the time to take a brief pause and consider where the school goes next.

We won’t be running the school in our usual week at the end of June this year but we plan to be back with a school redesigned for the needs of the 2020s.

We will see you soon!
