Workshop: Data Visualization

Wednesday, 18 September, 2019

A data visualization workshop will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 18, in Room 0400, Morrissey Hall.

Workshop participants will learn how to apply data visualization principles to their research, teaching and publications. From collecting data through finalizing decisions of color and layout, visualization is a powerful collection of methods for cleaning, analyzing, and presenting data to make and support arguments.

Participants will learn tips and tricks for making their visualizations compelling while exploring the ethics and affordances of selecting data sets to be visualized. No prior knowledge required. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop.
