Now They See It

Now they see it: Visual communication of the patterns in your data

    Tuesday, March 7th
    4:00 -- 6:00
    Swift 107

Within a well-designed graph or data visualization, the eyes can be a powerful tool for understanding patterns in data. But within a poorly-designed depiction of the same data, the same tasks can be inefficient, or even overwhelming.

​In this workshop​, Cognitive Science Program Director Steven Franconeri​ will combine an overview of data visualization techniques with hands-on exercises to illustrate how to clearly present your data to both your research colleagues and to non-technical audiences. Open to the entire Northwestern community, including undergraduates, PhD students, staff, and faculty.
