Data Literacy: Level 2 – How to Explore & Communicate Data
Learn how to work with data in this 6 week online course – how to think about data and pose a suitable question, how to find relevant data or create your own, how to clean and prepare your data for analysis, how to explore, visualize and discover key insights, and how to present those insights effectively to your audience so that you can have an impact.
Sessions are instructor-led, and trainees are expected to join live rather than of watching recordings on-demand.
Tools Used: Over the course of this program, we’ll use MS Excel, Google Sheets, Tableau Desktop and Tableau Prep (trial copies), Open Refine, Flourish, and the data.world platform.
What you get: Registration entitles you to:
- A 6 week online course with Ben Jones
- Access to instructor during weekly group office hours (2 hr / week)
- Access to session recordings for 90 days
- Links to helpful resources for further learning
Requirements: Trainees must connect to Zoom.us from a Mac or PC laptop with the above software installed (links to download will be sent 2 weeks prior to the first day of training). No prior familiarity with these tools is necessary.
