There are stories in the data. You need to get them out of there, and onto a map, preferably on the web. We'll talk about what tools to use, how best to use them, and do some hands on work to get you started.

Do you run or work for a small business with a new product to launch into market? Are you a campaign strategist with a new candidate in the running? Either way, you need to know what the public’s reception will be. Angus Reid’s Mario Canseco will take you through the polling process from research and strategy to analysis and interpretation, and help you understand what questions to ask and what the resulting data mean.
Exclusive weekend workshops led by some of our most accomplished contributors and colleagues.
The Tyee Master Classes offer immersion training in specialized disciplines designed and taught by acclaimed industry experts.
Each of our instructors has crafted an in-depth lesson plan informed by their experience working in the field. Expect to learn through both dialogue and doing. Classes include seminar-style instruction, interactive Q&A, hands-on break-out sessions and personalized feedback, with a promise to leave empty catch-phrases and sleep-inducing slideshows at home.
We know it's not possible to become a master in one weekend. But there is something to be said for study under great teachers -- a tradition passed down through history. Socrates was Plato's teacher. Mozart was mentored by Haydn. Picasso studied printing with Man Ray.
Offering mentorship and training from today's great teachers, The Tyee Master Classes will equip you for your own personal quest to the top of your game.
Join us in the inspiring ambiance of The Tyee's Vancouver offices, where our working newsroom becomes your classroom. And while your studies are serious, they most certainly don’t need to be stuffy -- refreshments and tasty catering set the mood for an interactive, flexible, high-impact lesson you can’t find anywhere else.
