Description:

Tables. Graphs. Figures. Text. When incorporating quantitative data and results into a written text, which format is best? Moreover, how should tables, graphs, and figures be designed to clearly communicate ideas? This workshop will provide answers to such questions, as well as explain how standards for presenting data and information vary across fields. We’ll begin by discussing what types of information lend best to visual communication and what format works best for conveying particular ideas. We’ll also discuss how to balance words with images and graphic design to present information with clarity. Finally, we’ll explore strategies for writing about tables, graphs, and figures in the body of a report or article.
