The Art of the Chart: Simple Tips to Improve Your Data Viz Game

May 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s a complex world, and the need for clear communication has never been greater. This learning series provides opportunities to build your science communication skills and reflect on how to tell meaningful stories about your work. Hosted by the Lake Superior Reserve’s Coastal Training Program and the Lake Superior Collaborative, this series is designed to help you gain confidence in your communication skills whether you are a scientific researcher, government employee, or in any line of work related to science or Lake Superior coastal management. This series will alternate between virtual workshops and webinars from January through May of 2021.

This session will borrow lessons from cognitive brain science and graphic design best practice to help us improve the way we display data to our audiences. This short course will provide you with some quick pointers and tips to help you improve your charts and graphics design. In this mini-workshop, you will learn to:

  • Recognize common chart design pitfalls
  • Use handy tricks to “cut the clutter” from charts and focus your audience’s attention
  • Think about every element of chart as part of a clear story
