Infographics are a specific type of data visualization that uses a mix of data, visuals, and text to inform or persuade. They are common in marketing and social media, but they are becoming more popular as a way to attract and engage with audiences to share your message. They can be used to promote yourself and your activities and discoveries; from marketing a new business product or service, to sharing research results with the public or stakeholders.

Through a combination of lecture and an activity, this 1-hour online workshop will introduce participants to best practices and guidelines for designing effective infographics and evaluating them.

For the final part of the workshop, participants will get a chance to critique an infographic and discuss their thoughts with the group.
