King’s partners with the CAJ and Red River College on Winnipeg data school

The King’s Data School is coming to Winnipeg.

The University of King’s College is partnering with the Canadian Association of Journalists and Red River College to present a week of Canada’s best data journalism training at the Roblin Centre site of Red River’s Exchange District Campus, from May 5 to 10.

Come learn the fundamentals of finding, analyzing and telling stories with data.

The King’s Data School has trained journalists from some of Canada’s biggest newsrooms, including the CBC, the Globe and Mail, the Winnipeg Free Press and the Toronto Star. Now you can join them. You’ll leave the school with the tools you need to find and tell stories that make a difference.

The Winnipeg school begins Sunday May 5, right after #CAJ19, the CAJ’s annual conference at the Radisson Hotel Winnipeg Downtown.

Active CAJ members current through May 12 can take advantage of a special discount of 10 per cent off the regular rates for journalists and journalism program faculty (see rates below). King’s data schools fill up quickly and we limit enrollment to 12, so sign up early.

All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the Data Journalist, from Oxford University Press, a $50 value.

To sign up, fill out the signup form and send it as an email attachment to You will need to provide your credit card information but if you prefer, indicate on the form that you would like us to call you to get the information. Once paid, you will have a reserved spot.

You must bring your own laptop computer to this course. Any recent Windows machine running Windows 10 or recent Mac running MacOS/OS X will be fine. You should have Microsoft Excel (part of Microsoft Office) installed, and room for other free software that we will install together Sunday May 5. Your computer does not need a DVD drive, but should have at least one free USB port.
