Prior to running analyses, data exploration is crucial to gain an understanding of the dataset and what it contains. Increasingly sophisticated visualization strategies can play an important role at this stage. Visualization is also used at the end of the data analysis process to communicate data insights to an audience, often in the form of a dashboard. In this course, participants will learn tool-agnostic fundamental strategies for visualizing and communicating data (storytelling) and be introduced to the grammar of graphics and the basics of dashboarding.
Following the course, the participants have the option of working on a guided project, getting feedback from the instructor.
