The purpose of this webinar is to present best practices for creating graphics and provide guidance for developing a critical eye that will allow participants to evaluate data visualizations for quality and accuracy. We will demonstrate how these best practices lead to visual displays that enhance reports and presentation that avoid common pitfalls. At the end of the session, attendees will be able to recognize common graphical mistakes that lead to inaccuracies and less effective graphics.

Edward Mulrow is Vice President at NORC at the University of Chicago, an Accredited Professional Statistician™ and Fellow of the American Statistical Association (ASA).  He has over 30 years of statistical consulting experience and has organized data visualization workshops and seminars that provided training, in-person consultation, and strategies for communicating statistical analyses in a visual way.

Nola du Toit uses her experience as Senior Research Methodologist at NORC at the University of Chicago to inform and create infographic reports and data visualizations. Her activities covers the entire information visualization process, including data measurement and conceptualization, user understanding and interpretation, and design principles.
