This 1-day interactive course provides a practical introduction to data visualization with Tableau Desktop, an industry-leading visualization tool. You will learn how to create effective visualizations by avoiding common mistakes and how to use Tableau by creating visualizations that range from bar and line charts to heat maps and geographic maps. You’ll then have the opportunity to apply your knowledge by tackling a series of data analysis ‘challenges’. The majority of the course will involve hands-on practical exercises.
Please note that only emails ending .ac.uk will be taken into account for bookings on this course.
The workshop is open to academic staff and students only, irrespective of their level of knowledge on Tableau.
No prior knowledge is assumed for this course other than having basic IT skills. However, you will get the most out of the course if you complete in advance the Get Started tutorial (https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/guides/get-started-tutorial/en-us/get-started-tutorial-home.htm). You can download Tableau onto your own PC and obtain a free temporary licence (see https://www.tableau.com/products/trial) or use it in the LIDA Training Room (Worsley 11.06), the Chemical Engineering IT Cluster or the Cohen A/B IT Cluster.
