Presenting data effectively leads to people actually reading our data and reports. When we can engage people with intentional reporting, our audience will be more engaged and able to take informed action. In my presentation, I will cover some of the research behind presenting data intentionally. We will review before and after transformations and dive into the steps taken to create deliverables rooted in data visualization technique. This process includes choosing the best chart type and correctly using of color, arrangement, text, and chart design. These are steps that you can immediately apply to your work. You will walk away knowing the anatomy of a good visualization, and will have more tools to better design your PowerPoint presentations, reports, fact sheets, dashboards, and conference posters.
- Students will be able to apply graphic design best practices to enhance data visualizations with simple, implementable steps
- Students will be better equipped to present data that tells a story, leading to increased audience engagement and data-driven decision making
