- To broaden participants’ visual vocabulary, and expose them to latest options, techniques and contemporary resources to communicate evidence using data visualisation;
- To get participants to practice the process of creating a data visualisation outputs by working in small groups on simple pre-defined assignments;
There is an increasing demand from clients and stakeholders to improve and innovate strategies and products to communicate evidence and research results, with a particular emphasis on short, accessible and visual material that facilitates understanding and uptake.
After a short presentation which aims to provide some key definitions, present key examples of different types of data visualisation outputs (20 mins including Q&A) a practical workshop will be facilitated to practice the process of creating data visualisation outputs (70 mins).
The participants will organise themselves in small groups (3-5 people) and be assigned a specific “data challenge”. The group will brainstorm, identify, sketch options for visualising the data and report back to the whole group using a design process framework provided.
The trainer will provide feedback and assessment on clarity, accessibility, design decisions made by the group and show the best examples of dataviz solutions available for each data challenge.
