Data Visualization Course

The amount and complexity of information produced in science, engineering, business, and everyday human activity is increasing at staggering rates. The goal of this course is to expose you to visual representation methods and techniques that increase the understanding of data. Through a set of hands-on activities and a team-based design process you will learn how to effectively visualize data for improved comprehension, communication, and decision making.

After completion of this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Evaluate and critique visualization designs
  • Apply principles of effective visualizations
  • Tell stories with visualizations
  • Use Tableau for interactive data exploration
  • Follow a principled design process
