Data Visual Analytics - How to Increase and Improve your Use of Data in Decision MakingInformatique
This will be an interactive workshop where participants will learn from
each other’s experiences as well as those of the facilitator.
To create these discussions, participants will work in small breakout groups discussing key questions or working on case studies. Review sessions with the whole group will not only summarize key learnings points, but will give participants an opportunity to practice data storytelling and presentation skills. Video’s as well as demonstration of some tools will help illustrate the topics covered.
The workshop will be run in sessions on consecutive days so as to allow some reflection on the learnings made, as well as adapt the workshop to the specific expectations and needs of the participants.
