MAR 26: Workshop on Data Visualization Techniques & Tools
March 26, 2024 | 11AM – 2PM. Hiebert Lounge. Lunch provided.
This workshop will provide training in the key principles of data visualization and the opportunity to practice applying these principles through worked examples. Participants will:
- Learn key principles and concepts for data visualization
- Acquire skills in creating data visualizations through examples created in R
- Design a data visualization in a hands-on group activity
This workshop will provide valuable information for both quantitative and non-quantitative researchers seeking to improve their ability to create useful and informative visualizations of data.
Participants with experience in R will have opportunities to practice the skills learned in R and gain access to code for examples shown in the workshop.
Participants without R programming experience will learn key principles and recommendations for data visualization as well as collaborate in the group design of a data visualization.
This interactive workshop will allow participants to work collaboratively in a hands-on group activity to design a visualization, applying the principles learned.
For those interested in learning more R prior to the workshop, materials from our prior R literacy session are available here.
