Data Visualization Workshop

United Nations Bhutan, in partnership with UNFPA Bhutan, organizes Data Visualization training courses, which will provide a comprehensive understanding of storytelling with an innovative way of data visualization to communicate the analysis findings in a precise manner for better results.

The training programme will use data storytelling methodology for communicating information, tailored to a different group of audiences, with a compelling narrative for better decision making. Telling data stories using visualization can put a human perspective on the increasingly complex and rapidly changing world of the digital era. Using smart visualization in data storytelling will help to:

  • Find the insights and gaps in the data.
  • Connect the data to the key underlying issue.
  • Learn to differentiate between good and bad visual design.
  • Go beyond templates and start using a wider range of analytical and design options, including chart types, features of interactivity, annotation, color applications, and composition.
  • Build an efficient process based on sound principles, practical guidelines, and best practices.
  • Learn critical thinking related to creating and consuming visualizations.

Based on the expertise, experiences, and role the prospected participants play in their respective organizations, participants have been categorized into three categories: 1) Data users, 2) Data producers and 3) Advocacy and Communications. The training is now open for registration: http://bhutan.datavizualizer.org/the-registration?usertype=Data%20User

Please kindly register based on your preference and availability. The deadline for the registration is 15 October 2020 (Next Thursday).

We will accommodate a maximum of 80 participants for each group on a first-come, first-served basis.
