Data Presentations: The Good, Bad and Unethical

Class Details

Join us as we cohost with Massachusetts Health Science Library Network (MAHSLIN) for a presentation by Jessie Casella, VA Clinical Librarian for Northampton, Central Western Mass Medical Center, on the Edward Tufte One Day course on Presenting Data and Information workshop. Edward Tufte’s course has a focus on fundamental design strategies for information displays such as tables, diagrams, charts and data visualizations. Jessie will focus on Mr. Tufte’s evaluation of data visualizations, ethics of data visualization design, and the pitfalls of PowerPoint. Jessie received the MAHSLIN Jay Daley Grant to take the Edward Tufte class on data visualization earlier this spring when Tufte was in Boston. I hope you will join us for what should a fun and informative overview of the class, tips on how to spot deceptive data visualizations and evaluate data presentations.
