Introduction to Data Visualization Using Tableau Desktop

Introduction to Data Visualization Using Tableau Desktop In-Person

Data visualization gives us a better understanding of our data and helps us communicate that to others. It has the potential to generate insights, communicate findings, and illustrate evidence. Conversely, a poor visualization can undermine an argument or even mislead the reader.

Through a combination of lecture and demonstrations, this 1.5-hour workshop will introduce you to data visualization using a common data visualization tool, Tableau Desktop. Participants will create visualizations such as a bar graphs, line graphs, and scatter plots. 

This workshop is designed for those new to data visualization and Tableau Desktop. There are no prerequisites or assumptions of knowledge of math, statistics, or programming.

In-Person Location: Robarts Library, 5th Floor, Room 5-053 (directly across from the elevator). Map & Data Library Computer Lab
