fee CHF 1100

Each day will contain a series of short lectures and demonstrations that introduce and discuss new topics. The bulk of each day will be dedicated to hands-on, step-by-step exercises to help participants ‘learn by doing’. In these exercises, participants will learn how to read-in and prepare data, how to create various types of static and interactive data visualizations, how to tweak them to exactly fit one’s needs, and how to embed them in digital reports. Accompanying the course, each participant will work on his or her own data visualization project turning an initial visualization sketch into a one-page academic paper featuring a polished, well-designed figure. To advance these projects, participants will be able to draw on support from the instructors in the afternoons of course days two to four.
