Really happy to be welcoming back MA Data Journalism alumna @oliviajlawlor from @f_l_o_u_r_i_s_h to @BCUJournalism to talk to current students as part of a double-header on scrollytelling today
I had no idea that @f_l_o_u_r_i_s_h had sports-specific #dataviz templates "to map a player's positions on a field/court" (via @oliviajlawlor)… #ddj
Also useful to consider @f_l_o_u_r_i_s_h's Stories feature as one way of creating animation that you can screencapture as a gif for social - e.g.… #ddj
I also didn't know you could reshape data (i.e. do pivot tables) inside @f_l_o_u_r_i_s_h - great inside tip from @oliviajlawlor… #bcujournos #ddj
Huge thanks to @oliviajlawlor for her talk about @f_l_o_u_r_i_s_h and #dataviz to @BCUJournalism MA students this morning - coming away with loads of ideas around how to inject movement into visual storytelling...

Completing today's double bill on scrollytelling, it's great to be able to welcome another @BCUJournalism alumna to speak to MA students: @carolinebeavon on her "lockdown data story" 104 Days Later… #bcujournos
Succinctly expressed point by @carolinebeavon on the methodological issues of using social media to conduct surveys: "We're not gathering data at all - we're gathering testimonials". @Typeform was useful for this because people could upload files (recordings)
3/ ...but only one person uploaded an audio clip, so @carolinebeavon decided to contact respondents who left details to conduct interviews via Zoom in order to generate audiovisual material

THREAD: As many journalism students are understandably concerned about their work during the disruption caused by #coronavirus, here is some of the advice I've been giving to my students...
1/ Adaptability is a key skill in journalism. This period will see you learning how to adapt in ways that you will draw on throughout your journalism career. See this as a challenge, not an obstacle...
2/ Watch a range of news to see how professional journalists are adapting to limitations on the movement of their sources, colleagues, and themselves — as well as adapting to the news agenda being dominated by one story

Great to have @abigailedge at @BCUJournalism this afternoon to give #Bcujournos a special workshop on verification, trends, advanced search and Google Earth Timelapse
@abigailedge @BCUJournalism One of my favourite tips via @abigailedge is combining "" with "inurl:lists" but I like the addition of keywords in triangular brackets (or 'alligators'!) too: "<mental health bloggers>"… #bcujournos
