What we'll cover
visual analytic skills, engage in active planning for elegant visual design, implement dashboards that reflect best practices, answer your data questions, and best communicate answers to your intended audience.
Full course description
You'll learn how to:
- Design visualizations to effectively leverage sensory and short-term memory.
- Design visualizations to inform viewers without misleading.
- Effectively use chart types to answer specific questions.
- Design dashboards and stories using visual best practices.
You should already know how to use Tableau well. Ideally, you have taken Desktop I: Fundamentals and Desktop II: Intermediate courses, but this is not an official prerequisite. Be aware that we won't introduce you to product features or walk you through step-by-step instructions.
What to Bring
Students are encouraged to bring in their own data or visualization examples, but this is not a requirement. We
also recommend bringing a notepad, pen or pencil, and a USB drive to save any work.
