Techniques for learning and teaching data skills #1 Data Expeditions

13th July 2018 – 10.00 – 16.00
Federation House
Federation Street
Manchester M4 4BP

In association with 360Giving

A data expedition is the best way to learn data skills by working through datasets. We’re looking for people with a deep interest in a particular topic or who have particular skills in coding, analysis, scouting out data, design or data-storytelling who will work with a team to guide them through a data-based investigation. We will focus on 360Giving grants data, but feel free to explore other topics too!

This data expedition will be in ‘train the trainer’ format, and will teach you how to facilitate your own data expeditions in the future, and will explain how to incorporate data expedition in your work.

Please bring a laptop if you can although spares will be available.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.

This is a limited capacity event. If you are unable to attend please notify us so we can make your place available to others.
