New class! Make Your Point: Basic Principles of Data Visualization Design

Posted by on July 7th, 2016 Posted in: Education, Evaluation, Technology


NN/LM MAR, the National Evaluation Office and the Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey (HSLANJ) are pleased to offer this new one hour webinar.

Make Your Point: Basic Principles of Data Visualization Design

Data visualizations are everywhere these days: social media, infographics, data dashboards, and trendy organizational reports.  A good data visualization communicates dense amounts of information quickly and effectively.  A bad one is a hodgepodge that creates confusion. To create effective data visualizations, you need to know the basic principles of chart design. These principles apply whether you are using sophisticated data visualization technology or tried-and-true Excel. In this webinar, we will describe a process for developing a chart that helps you make your point without making a mess. (This webinar provides 1 credit of MLA continuing education.)

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM Eastern

Date: July 19

Location: Online webinar. Call-in instruction will be provided to registered participants a week prior to the training session.

Registration required.

Presenters:

Cindy Olney is the Assistant Director of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Evaluation Office (NEO, formally known at the NN/LM OERC).  She has been a program evaluator for more than 25 years.
