I've used a lot of what I learned in the Visual Analytics class to revamp my Tableau dashboards and people have noticed the difference! My manager said she didn't know what all I had changed in the reports, but that they look sharper and the layouts and tooltips have really made a difference in understanding the reports.

More information


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.
