Today: HR Training Series: Thinking Visually

Thinking Visually: (1.5 hours) People have always depended on visual representations such as charts and maps to understand information more easily and quickly. The University has committed to using Tableau as its primary data visualization tool for University information and data sharing. Visualizing data makes it easier than ever for employees to quickly discover insights in their data and take action. Interactive dashboards take data analytics one step further – moving beyond a static display of charts and spreadsheets allowing consumers of data to point-and-click and be even more self-sufficient in working with data.

Participants in this session will learn the fundamentals of thinking visually (visual perception) and some of the best practices in the visual design of data. The session will also include examples of how Tableau is currently being used across the JCU campus helping us become a more analytic campus culture.
