How to Tell a Story with Data Visualization
Tuesday, May 26, 2020
10:00am - 11:30am
Is your data sitting around in spreadsheets: dusty, unused, and forgotten about?
Your data deserves to be out in the world: utilized, actionable, and talked about!
Visualizing data through charts, tables, and diagrams helps you deliver bite-sized information that stakeholders can understand at a glance and retain for the long run. In this webinar, Ann K. Emery, an expert in data visualization and storytelling, will walk us through some practical tips we can apply to our own evaluation work.
You will learn how to:
- customize your visualization for your audience;
- choose the right chart for your message;
- declutter your visuals;
- reinforce your branding with custom colour palettes and typography;
- increase accessibility.
You will also learn to tell a story through dark colours, explicit titles, and annotations.
We will conclude with tips for designing short summary documents and a live screen-sharing demo of how to design effective visualizations using spreadsheet software you already have, like Excel.
