What's the right graph for your data?  How can a chart help to convey your message?

Although widely used in research to analyze and communicate data, graphs and charts are often poorly mastered by researchers. Based on Dr. Jean-luc Doumont's popular book, Trees, Maps, and Theorems, this workshop will provide attendees the skills needed to:

• Select the appropriate type of image for a given data set and research question
• Optimize a graph's layout to reveal a study's outcomes
• Write a caption that is useful for the researcher and reader

This interactive lecture will include ample time for attendees to discuss their research graphics both with Dr. Doumont and fellow faculty. This event is part of the Faculty Enrichment and Education Development (FEED) series, which includes workshops on key topics in faculty development. It provides an opportunity for faculty to learn in a collegial environment. Dinner will be served from 5:15pm-5:30pm. The presentation will begin promptly at 5:30pm.
