BA 514 Information Visualization and Communication 3 Cr.
This course teaches the skills necessary to communicate information about data clearly and effectively through written, oral and visual means. Students will learn and practice with advanced graphical tools to effectively communicate. The course will build from the understanding of data to the presentation of the analysis. Data storytelling will provide tools to effectively communicate ideas, summarize, influence, explain, persuade and provide evidence to an audience. Visualization can convey patterns, meaning and results extracted from multivariate, geospatial, textual, temporal, hierarchical and network data. During the course students will deliver presentations using these techniques and will also learn to critically evaluate other presentations.
