80 - Telling Stories With Data: The Art and Science of Infographics Design

Saturday, Nov 11
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Processing large amount of information is a challenge we face every day. Designing infographics teaches us how to tell stories with data that are both elegant and precise. Systematic exposure to data visualization and information design techniques can help students learn to interpret intricate data, see patterns and connections that matter, map and tell stories behind complex concepts, and develop strong visual thinking skills. In this session, we explore basic principles of data visualization, share best resources for finding and creating infographics, and discuss practical ideas for incorporating visual thinking exercises into various subjects.
