Visualizing your data can be a highly effective way to communicate your research results to a wide variety of audiences. This workshop covers best practices in converting your data into effective charts and graphs (i.e., visualizations). We will discuss how to get started, ways to tell your data’s story visually and how to thoughtfully use all the tools at your disposal. We will also work through hands-on examples using Python and the Python package matplotlib. This in-person workshop will not be recorded. 

Prerequisites: No prior Python knowledge is required. You will get the most out of the workshop if you bring a laptop to participate. You will not need to install any packages, as tools and materials can be accessed on the cloud from your laptop. 

Registration Required.
