As data journalists and computational journalism become key elements in newsrooms, Columbia University’s Tow Center for Digital Journalism has been tracking the trend and examining its impact on post-industrial journalism. Columbia students have been practicing data-driven journalism as part of their coursework since 2012. The Tow Center’s annual Innovation Showcase, a public two-day event in May, highlights students’ transformation of their efforts into compelling and powerful digital journalism projects.
