- But the amount of information available today is staggering, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by too many statistics, distracted by the wrong set of numbers, and confused by the complexity of data.
- The Data Visualization - Communicating Data and Complex Ideas Visually program at the Harvard University combines the science of data visualization with the art of graphic design to help you communicate complex information more accurately and effectively. By transforming data sets into visual graphics—such as charts, bar graphs, scatterplots, and heatmaps—you will learn to present complex data in ways your audience can better understand. Through hands-on exercises, you’ll explore the many types of data in use today, learn how people perceive different graphical displays, and create visual presentations that make a stronger impact on your audience.
- Creating interactive visualizations using Tableau
- Conceptualizing ideas and interaction techniques using sketching
- Using the visualization design sprint process
- Evaluating strengths and weaknesses of visualization approaches for improvements
- Applying principles of effective visualizations to connect with your audience
This program is ideal for professionals or managers in a wide range of disciplines with an interest in the visual presentation of data. No programming experience or specific software experience is necessary. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet.
