If so, you should sign up for our hands-on workshop to learn about how you can incorporate Tableau’s data visualization software into your research and projects. This workshop is designed to familiarize participants with Tableau software and provide an introduction to creating visualizations and dashboards. By the end of the workshop, participants will be comfortable importing data into Tableau and navigating the interface, and be able to develop different types of charts and visualizations. In order to devote almost all of our face-to-face workshop time to hands-on exercises, please complete the following pre-class exercises (~ 15 minutes) and then complete the quiz at the end.
