Interactive learning on Data Visualisation
As statisticians, we are used to creating charts and graphs for communicating our data, but there is rarely any formal training on it. Everybody picks up some tips and tricks along the way. Our abilities depend heavily on what we can create using the software available to us. The templates (or the example we copy the code from) define largely what our output will be.
The upcoming interactive data visualisation training during the PSI conference in 2021 will help you to learn about some fundamental principles in data visualisation. As the training will only use pen and paper and no software at all, you will have a lot of freedom and creativity to come up with great sketches of data visualisations. This training format was developed iteratively and hundreds of participants within UCB have already benefitted from it.
So bring your coloured pens (some steal from the kids!) and some paper to this fun learning experience and improve your data visualisation skills.
