On September 6, we hosted a mixer introducing new Journalism School students to both to the Brown Institute at Columbia as well as the Tow Center for Digtital Journalism. The room was, gratifyingly, packed! For those of you who couldn’t attend, Brown offers unique training events like the Transparency Series— where you will learn journalistic uses for VR and AR and Machine Learning, for example — and various hack and design workshops. We also sponsor speakers and special conferences like Sneakercon. We hold open office hours and unique training modules on topics like design, mapping and data analysis. Finally, our Magic Grant season begins in November with gatherings to help you refine your ideas and turn them into successful proposals.
The 2017-2018 year is off to a great start!
