Data Visualization – An Introduction

This is a 2-hour online course providing an introduction to the process of data visualization. Data visualization is a process by which one can display data in a way that is relevant and interesting to an audience, as opposed to using traditional data reporting visuals.

In this course, participants will learn to identify their audience; find a story in a set of data appropriate for a target audience; understand the process of developing simple but compelling data visualizations; share and disseminate the visualization; and promote ongoing use of the data to inform decision-making. Learners will have the opportunity to work through a guided example to develop a visualization for a specific audience, with an emphasis on the process of developing strong data visualizations and using that process to promote the use of data for decision-making (rather than simply for reporting).
