This webinar will explore three data visualization softwares that can be taught to classes, faculty, and staff on a fundamental level.

Problem: The utilization of data visualization has rapidly expanded across diverse industries within higher education. Consequently, this has left numerous libraries and information specialists with the need to enhance their skill set. However, this can be a daunting task, particularly for librarians and information professionals who lack expertise in statistics, data science, or coding. Nevertheless, acquiring these skills can open up a world of opportunities and enable them to make better-informed decisions and enhance learning practices.

Solution: This webinar will provide a step-by-step approach to learning how to collect data and use popular data visualization software. We will also explore ways to incorporate these techniques into our work routine and pedagogical strategies for students. This is an exclusive opportunity for information professionals and librarians to learn valuable insights into the power of data visualization in education.
