ONA Austin: Student Innovations in Data Journalism

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA Austin

Please join us on May 21 at the Austin American-Statesman for another joint meetup of Hacks/Hackers ATX and ONA Austin for Student Innovations in Data Journalism. Jake Batsell, a professor at SMU, will be visiting with us to discuss his students’ award-winning Light of Day Project: Campus Crime. The project analyzes and publishes data associated with crime in the SMU area.

And, Cindy Royal and her Advanced Online Media students from Texas State will be launching their Texas State of Change project at the meeting. This project highlights Texas State’s recent designation as Hispanic Serving Institution with multimedia and data reporting.

Please support these student organizations and join us to learn more about what is being taught in Texas journalism schools to prepare future journalists.

Refreshments will be sponsored by Texas State University via the AEJMC/Knight Building a Bridge ( grant that Royal’s class received to complete the project.

We hope to see you on the 21st.
