Data visualizations help us compress and make decisions using data. It is often cited that we are trying to tell stories through them. Crafting stories with data requires us to be a visual designer, coder, statistician, and storyteller. It is both a science and an art. This workshop serves as an introduction to the visual and story techniques that are often employed when developing data-stories.
We will walk through the three elements required to be a successful data storyteller: a review of basic stats that permeate misleading narratives, discussion of metrics necessary to tell a convincing story, and the principles of effective data visualization. Throughout the class, students will engage in interactive exercises and see how the best practices they're learning are used in real-examples.
