Anatomy of a Data Visualization: Telling Stories With Your Data

Thursday May 5 2022, 6:00 - 8:00 PM ET

Data visualization is a powerful tool for telling meaningful stories with data. It helps us see patterns and trends that we might not have noticed otherwise, or tell a story that’s more compelling than numbers in a table.

Designers Shay Saharan, Michie Wu and Amy Zhang from the Biomedical Communications (MScBMC) program at UofT will share with us how to select the best visualization type for your data and audience, improve its effectiveness using graphic design, and dive into the tools necessary for visualization.

About the SCC

The University of Toronto Science Communication Club focuses on the public communication of current science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (S.T.E.M.) research to non-experts and the general public. We make science more accessible by producing and sharing accurate, unbiased and creative science media.

Apart from building bridges between professionals and non-experts, we aim to raise interest in science communication within and beyond the University of Toronto.
