Learning Analytics: Data Visualization & Infographics

Noon-1:15pm, Union South (TITU)

What are the similarities and differences between visualizations and infographics, and does it really matter? What do we need to pay attention to, in order to improve our understanding when we read data? What are some common traps and tricks that we need to beware of when we’re looking at visualizations?

Cid Freitag from DoIT Academic Technology will provide insight into visual thinking and the design of infographics and data visualizations. A variety of examples – the good, the bad, and the ugly – will be provided to highlight that dramatically different stories are told, depending on how the data is presented.
