Visualising Your Research: Creative Approaches and Drawings to Help Communicate Your Work (428)
27 and 28 May 2021
|Lang||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.
• Communication and visualisation
• The basics of drawing • How to draw accurately
At the end of the course students will:
• Understand and practice the basics of graphic design
• Have basic drawing skills (tone, composition, proportion etc.)
• Know the process/workflow of producing visualisations - from sketches to final layout • Understand how to tell a story in pictures
Students should bring pencils and sketchbooks. They should also bring their laptops – they will be producing / reworking a visualisation in the classroom. There will be a process of presentations and feedback.
Students must bring material to the workshop with which to make a visualisation, either a visualisation they have already made that they want to rework ; or the research data they will need to produce a new visualisation.
