Data visualisation
8-12 July 2019
Andy Kirk

Nearly 6,000 people have attended variations of this workshop with delegates coming from all subject backgrounds, organisation types and domain areas: they are intended to be accessible for and useful to any participant demographic.
You might be an analyst, statistician, or researcher looking to enhance the creativity and impact of your communications. Perhaps you possess creative flair, as a designer or developer, and you’re seeking to enhance the rigour of your data-driven capabilities? Maybe you do not personally get involved in the analysis or presenting of data but supervise others who do?
We are all frequent consumers of data visualisations in our daily lives, via media and through the workplace, whether we realise or not, so improving the sophistication of how one reads, interprets and evaluates the effectiveness of such displays is a key capability.
Data visualisation literacy, as a creator or consumer, is a critical competence everybody can benefit from as citizens of a 21st century society increasingly shaped by opportunities emerging from the digital and data age.

Course Outline
This workshop will provide attendees with an accessible, practical and comprehensive understanding of the subject of data visualisation.
The focus of the training is to teach the craft of this discipline, helping delegates to know what to think, when to think and how to think about all the analytical and design decisions involved in any data-driven challenge.
The training is structured around a proven design process. Across the session delegates will build up, stage by stage, a detailed understanding of all the different aspects of decision-making that goes into any data visualisation project.
The teaching content will provide a mixture of practice, case-study and theoretical perspectives. The teaching methods will involve an energetic blend of teaching, discussion, and group practice. A large percentage of time will be allocated to practical exercises that vary in nature from evaluating work, conceiving ideas, sketching concepts, assessing data, and forensically assessing design choices.
The approach to teaching this subject is not framed around specific tools or applications. Across the session there will be references for some of the most common, contemporary technologies but the emphasis is on the underlying craft, regardless of your tools or technical skills.

Course Objectives
There are four over-riding objectives for this workshop:
To challenge your existing thinking about creating and consuming visualisation works, helping to clarify your convictions about what differentiates good from bad visualisation design.
To enlighten you with an appreciation of the wide range of analytical and design options, including chart types, features of interactivity, annotation, colour applications, and composition.
To equip you with the knowledge and practical experience of employing an efficient design process that heightens your confidence in making astute choices
To inspire you to have the confidence to elevate your creative ambitions, by broadening your visual vocabulary and exposing you to a wider view of the contemporary techniques being used today.

•          Students - £600
