The School of Communication and the Department of Journalism of HKBU will organize a University-wide “HKBU Data-driven Storytelling Competition 2018” in early-mid March. We hope to facilitate the interdisciplinary teaching, learning, and discussion on data-driven news reporting and storytelling, as well as to appreciate exemplary student projects using emerging technologies.
Now the Competition Coordination Committee (“Committee”) is calling for two student helpers as event organizers to help handle event preparation and support. Duties include the following:
- Designing a (simple one-page) poster for the event;
- Designing a website with several (static) pages for event updates;
- Monitoring and documenting the registration process;
- Handling participants’ submissions;
- Providing contact and liaison support for different parties;
- Documenting the entire process, such as taking photos, writing brief essays and recaps;
- Other administrative and logistic support to be assigned by the Committee.
- Requirements: full-time HKBU students with good English and Chinese skills, prior knowledge and experience on data-driven storytelling and web design will be an advantage.
The student helper each will receive an allowance at a rate 50 HKD/hour, with a total of 10 – 15 hours.
Please submit your CV including your relevant credentials to Xinzhi Zhang ( xzzhang2 [AT] hkbu [DOT] edu [DOT] hk ) on or before 6:00 pm, 25 Feb (Sunday).
Note: Late applicants will not be accepted. Also, for the sake of fairness, student helpers are NOT allowed to participate in this competition. The Committee appreciates all the applications. However, only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

Civic Exchange (思匯政策研究所,“CE” hereafter, a think tank) would like to collaborate with HKBU JOUR to make series of investigative reports on the issue of open space in Hong Kong. Basically, CE will share several datasets, and provide guidance on how to harvest other public data and how to interpret it, whereas the student teams will conduct reporting on this theme. Data journalism and data-driven storytelling are potential formats.
Mobile games are fun to play and also fun to build. You will experience building a mobile game in this workshop using Corona SDK. Corona SDK is an easy-to-learn Software Development Kit for building cross-platform games.
No programming background required.

Data is the key for environmental investigation and monitoring. However it is very hard for ordinary citizens to get access to. Let water quality be example, which is associated closely with our daily life. When serious environmental disasters break out, with limited information disclosure from government, general public can hardly know the truth in time. The motivates us to organise this workshop that enables you to make DIY monitoring devices with open technology.
