Visualising Your Research: Creative Approaches and Drawing to Help Communicate Your Work (426)
14 mars 2024
|Workshop language is English
The clearest and most effective method to communicate some information is through a picture. This is particularly true for scientists. However, students with little previous instruction can find making these visualisations challenging and the results disappointing. In this workshop participants will obtain a grounding in the basics of visual design. They will learn techniques and working methods to enable them to produce successful and effective visualisations. Visualisations that will enable them to communicate their research more clearly and engage the viewer.
At the end of the course students will:
Participants should bring pencils and sketchbooks.... and have something interesting from the kitchen to draw - such as a pepper grinder, espresso stove top maker, tea pot... something that has a purpose.
They should also have a visualisation that they have already made and want to improve. (Or else they can begin a new visualisation, but must have the data to hand that they need to do so).
Participants will use this visualisation to apply what they will be learning throughout the day. At the end of the day there will be a process of presentations and feedback.
Some tool on their computer with which to make the visualisation, such as Powerpoint or Indesign - whatever they normally use - is necessary.
This workshop does NOT teach software.
