Best practices for data visualization in M&E
This Webinar is a one-hour session ideal for Monitoring and Evaluation professionals who are interested in learning more about best practices for data visualization. There are more tools than ever for visualizing data, but designing visualizations that help spur action, inform our audiences, and support better outcomes for beneficiaries remains challenging.
In this session, we’ll step back from specific tools and the mechanics of visualizing data to think about the principles of effective data visualization.
We won't present how to use specific tools to create visualizations but some of the key points we will cover are:
- Identifying your audience
- Choosing goals for your visualization
- Choosing the right format to achieve your goals
- Ensuring that visualizations faithfully and effectively communicate your data
There will also be a Q&A session so make sure you bring your questions to the table.
The Webinar will be in English and there are limited seats available.
