This class will provide an introductory experience with Tableau, currently one of the best software programs for optimally visualizing and explaining data. Class meetings are heavily practice-oriented, with hands-on activities working with data, designing visualizations, and creating interactive dashboards.
The primary focus of the course is to develop core proficiencies in Tableau and to develop the confidence to continue your practice towards great mastery. During class meetings, we will also discuss data visualization theory and design, how to identify metrics, and ethical considerations related to data visualization. The class will also review but not use additional software packages to provide context and options for future use. Like all technology-based skills, Tableau skills atrophy quickly and will develop best when used. Participants will have the opportunity to work on a personal project to be submitted following the close of our class meetings.
