Exploratory data analysis / Effective written communication / Effective visual presentation of data / Design for human perception
Annette Greiner and Christopher Arnold
Communicating clearly and effectively about the patterns we find in data is a key skill for a successful data scientist. This course focuses on the design and implementation of complementary visual and verbal representations of patterns and analyses in order to convey findings, answer questions, drive decisions, and provide persuasive evidence supported by data. Assignments will give students hands-on experience with designing and building data visualizations as well as reporting their findings in prose.
