This 1.5-day workshop by Jean-luc Doumont and Geneviève Casterman (Principiae) focuses on how to represent quantitative data visually.
Although widely used to analyze data and to communicate about these data, graphical displays are still poorly mastered by researchers, who often use the wrong graphs or use them in the wrong way (and popular software does not exactly help). The current workshop intends to remedy these shortcomings.
Dr ir Doumont is an international expert on communication with extensive experience training researchers at universities across Europe, in North and South America, as well as in Asia.
After attending this training, participants will know ...
Besides the conceptual discussion in plenary group of their own sample graphs, participants will have the chance to sharpen their skills on a homework with extensive feedback and a realistic case in subgroups. Ahead of time, participants must submit two sample graphs. After the first day, there is a homework assignment.
The program consists of three half days. To get a ‘pass’, participants must demonstrate regular attendance (no more than one absence, and not on the second half day), and must satisfactorily complete the assigned homework.
Participants who have already taken 'Fundamentals' as part of the workshop 'Effective scientific communication' need not take it again. Please contact the doctoral schools team in this case.
An important part of preparing for any further professional step is becoming (more) aware of the competences you have developed and/or want to develop. In the current workshop, the following competences from the UHasselt competency overview are actively dealt with:
