Making Data Easy to Digest
Good graphical displays of data communicate ideas with clarity, precision, and efficiency. Bad graphical displays distort or obscure the data, make it harder to understand or compare, or otherwise thwart the communicative effect which the graph should convey. With a solid foundation in data visualisation techniques, you can ensure your audience grasps the insights from your data correctly and quickly.
During the workshop we will focus on:
Identifying the relevant data to present - Don’t try to make all the data relevant, present the relevant data correctly.
Choosing the right tool for the job - Know when to use which graph depending on the message you are trying to convey.
Draw attention to the message within the data - The whole is different to the sum of its parts - show it!
Step by step guide to data storytelling - Learn the key ingredients to storytelling to set the stage for your data presentation.
The short-course format is designed to provide you with a basic foundation to start you on your data visualisation journey. The course duration is 3.5 hours. In the first half of the course we will focus on the learning objectives. In the second half we will workshop the learnings and storyboard an infographic.
The full-day course format introduces participants to online software to bring their infographic storyboard to life. This allows the students the opportunity to familiarise themselves with readily available technology to transform their infographic ideas into digital format.
