UAB Libraries: Reading Between the Charts - Data Visualization and Media Literacy

This is a past event.

Presented by Marla Hertz and Brooke Becker. Infographics are effective tools to both convey information and substantiate claims. However, improper processing of raw data into its final graphical form can distort the truth. This presentation will highlight cases of poor data visualization and teach best practices to adopt when creating your own figures and tables.

Registration is required for in-person attendance only. Please do not register if you plan on attending via Zoom. UAB faculty are always welcome to show up to in-person CTL events without registering, but we ask that if food is being served, you wait until all registered participants have gotten their food before serving yourself.
