Data visualizations can inform, explain, and sway public opinion and policy decisions. For example, we rely on visual representations of dynamic trends throughout the pandemic as portrayed by charts, maps, and dashboards.
This course imparts design thinking and data ethics frameworks, along with practical data software skills, to construct and present data visually. Students work on iterative design, build, and feedback exercises to develop visual communication acumen for conveying insights uncovered by data exploration to illuminate public policy issues through visual storytelling.
