Seminar Summary:

The careful planning of visual tools will be the focus of this workshop. Part of our responsibility as professionals is to turn information into knowledge. Data complexity can often obscure main findings, or hinder a true understanding of program impact. So how do we make information more accessible to different audiences? Often this is done by visually displaying data and information, but this approach, if not done carefully, can also lead to confusion. We will explore the underlying principles behind effective information displays. These are principles that can be applied in almost any area of evaluation, and draw on the work of Edward Tufte, and Stephen Few to illustrate the breadth and depth of their applications. In addition to providing tips to improve most data displays, we will examine the core factors that make them effective. We will discuss the use of the common graphical tools, and delve deeper into other graphical displays that allow the user to visually interact with the data. Topics covered will include : interactive visual displays, GIS, qualitative and quantitative data display, and crowdsourcing visualizations. This workshop is designed as an introduction to the topics, and no prior training is required.
