With the rise of big data, data visualization has quickly become a fixture in daily life, from presentations of charts and graphs by media organizations to presentations of data analytics and case relationships by legal database providers. This program will walk participants through conceptualizing data as qualitative or quantitative, & declarative or questioning. It will also explore using data visualization to educate and/or persuade your audience. We will present examples of ways to use each concept in the law school classroom, using free and low cost data visualization tools.
Participants will understand how to conceptualize data and will be able to use data visualizations to educate and/or persuade an audience.
Participants will be able to identify free and low cost data visualization tools and will know how to use each tool to present law library data.
