As a program evaluator, you are likely creating reports and data visualizations. But have you ever paused to design a framework that you could use when visualizing data? A framework would make your work more strategic and save you time and energy. You will identify the steps that you should take to avoid data pitfalls, make thoughtful design choices, and incorporate storytelling elements. This is a highly interactive workshop. Participants will be exposed to real-world examples and exercises. So far, Rebeca’s workshops have been foundational to over 700 previous participants, who were able to immediately elevate their approach to data visualization and storytelling.
The price for the three-session workshop is $200.
Participants will learn:
- How to effectively communicate big ideas using data visualization
- Common pitfalls to avoid when visualizing data
- A simple plan for creating your own data visualization
- What to consider when building a data story
- Hands-on exercise on creating your own visualization
This workshop consists of three sessions that take place on:
- Session I – February 24, 2021; 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (EST)
- Homework Session – March 1, 2021; 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm (EST)
- Session II – March 3, 2021; 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm (EST)
Rebeca Pop is the founder of Vizlogue, a Data Visualization and Storytelling Lab that offers training and consulting services. Vizlogue’s mission is to help companies and organizations communicate more effectively with data. Rebeca has delivered presentations to over 700 participants all around the world. Her workshops are grounded in a deep understanding of adult learning strategies and combine hands-on exercises with feedback sessions and real-life examples. Prior to founding Vizlogue, Rebeca spent 3 years teaching data visualization at the University of Chicago and at DePaul University. Teaching gave Rebeca the opportunity to understand this field at a much deeper level and made her realize that she could use her skills to help others elevate their data visualization and storytelling practices.
Any evaluator who is trying to answer the What, So What and Now What visually (graphs) and/or verbally (storytelling) would benefit from this workshop. Evaluators will gain hands-on experience, which will enable them to immediate implement the learnings and create a framework for how they approach the data visualization and storytelling process.
