If You Visualize it, They Will Come: Raw Data Reimagined with Infographics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students have limited experience with using primacy source data sets to support a thesis. Our objective in this activity is to introduce them to one method of drawing conclusions and presenting it in an easily digested format - the infographic. We use Census Bureau data through American FactFinder and a free infographic generator Infogram to help students visualize surprising connections between multiple data points. Students leave with an additional tool they can use to support their arguments in academic and professional work. The presenters will discuss direct application to the ACRL Framework concepts.
