Workshop 4: Fake news? How to ensure the data you gather is accurate
Every statistic tells a story but is the story you are being told the truth? In a world where it is easy to drown in data and information, knowing what is important and whether it is accurate is more crucial than ever.
This workshop gets behind the headlines and provides the key skills to help you better understand your data, draw accurate insights and interpret the stories it is used to tell.
Using examples from a range of everyday situations, this workshop will cover:
- Where data comes from
- How it is collected
- Who provides it, and
- What it actually says
These workshops are developed and delivered in partnership with Dr Rob Rowlands, Director of Rob Rowlands Research.
Having trained in planning and housing, and with a PhD in Urban Geography, Rob has over 20 years experience working at some of the UK’s top universities responding to, developing and managing research. He has helped a wide range of organisations, from national and international governments, local and regional councils, to private businesses and charities, to develop research skills and critical thinking to find the answers they need to make a positive difference.
