Programul de formare “Iniţiere în journalism bazat pe date deschise” se bazează pe teoriile învăţării situaţionale şi experienţiale, şi va focusa în mare parte pe dezvoltarea abilităţilor de bază necesare pentru abordarea diferitor tipuri de date pentru a scrie ştiri, noutăţi, crea aplicaţii pentru mobil sau web.
Aici puteti accesa AGENDA preliminara pentru program. În cadrul programului de formare, fiecare participant va avea acces la un calculator conectat la Internet, şi va avea posibilitate în timp real, de rind cu formatorii, să lucreze la crearea tabelelor, curăţarea datelor preluate de pe net, crearea vizualizărilor, etc..
Participanţii se vor organiza în grupuri mixte, în jurul unui subiect/domeniu thematic, de ex. Alegeri, Cultură, Educaţie, Dezvoltare rurală, Infrastructură, etc.. Fiecare grup mixt, pe lîngă jurnalişti, va avea un dezvoltator TI (tehnologia informaţiei), şi un reprezentant al societăţii civile. Fiecare echipă va lucra la descrierea unei situaţii din domeniu, utilizînd datele disponibile. Acest fapt va permite echipei să dezvolte şi să descrie situaţia aleasă (noutatea/istoria din spate), precum şi să creeze partea vizuală/grafică a acesteia.
