Event Date & Time

    1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Description

This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 12-15, 2022.

Dissemination is a critical part of teaching and learning projects. Choosing the best visualizations for sharing quantitative and qualitative findings is key to ensuring that your outcomes are understandable and accessible to your audience. However, designing effective figures that present your data in a clear and meaningful way can be challenging.

This session will offer attendees a chance to develop a deeper understanding of:

  • Why clear visualizations matter
  • How to define the purpose of a visualization
  • Basic do’s and don’ts for data visualization
  • Resources for making your visualizations more accessible

This session will provide examples of easy ways to improve visualizations of teaching and learning project outcomes, and discuss why some visualization types are more clear than others. We will also share guiding principles for creating your own visualizations. This session will not walk attendees through the creation of the visualizations.

Presenters: 

  • Natasha Pertonji, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Facilitator
  • Trish Varao-Sousa, Evaluation and Research Consultant

This event will be hosted on Zoom.
