Stories from Data launches for Fall Semester

Stories from Data is a workshop that emphasizes the intersection of design, cognition, data science, decision-making, and storytelling. In the first weeks of the recurring sessions, participants learn about bias, color, layering, and data presentation.

We focus on the crucial work visualization performs for analysis, as well as the importance of narratives both prior and subsequent to data visualizations of analytic processes. The workshop culminates with hands-on instruction of programming interactive visualizations using the D3.js javascript library.

Over the past 3 weeks, faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students have met for training and exercises. Stay tuned for updates and samples of work!
