    Course Description:

    Deriving insights from data is more efficient when using a well-crafted data visualization than when using tables or reports. However, the journey to creating a well-crafted visualization can encounter many common pitfalls, especially when enabled by spreadsheet tools. This course will cover the principles and science behind creating a great visualization and change how you look at pie and bar charts. This course will dive into topics including:

    • Building Blocks of Data Visualization – basic elements of a visualization and how they work together to create various chart types
    • Data Visualization Designs – design principles used in data visualizations, how to convey messages through graphic representation, and making visualizations accessible and inclusive
    • Exploration & Storytelling – storytelling with data and the use of tools to build visualizations
    • Data Manipulation for Data Visualization – preparing data in a way that enables iteration through many visualizations and working with data manipulation techniques that aid effective data visualization
