Data Visualisation

The brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than text. Communicating through data visualisation is not simply a must-have in today’s creative economy but also a need-to-know. Increasingly teams struggle to capture their audiences’ attention and fail to recover value from data. Software tools for enabling you to interact directly will ensure your data does not go unrealised.

Our course is designed for a community of learners looking to expand their skills and build on experience using Microsoft Power BI to generate useful insights, trends and patterns that inform real-time decision making. You will learn to apply the concepts of data types to better prepare your data for practical use, perform data analysis using simple modelling techniques and understand functional aspects of data visualisation tools to produce reports and dashboards. 

There is no need to share or provide access to your company’s data, learners will get access to real-time data and gain skills from experienced professionals they can put into practice straightaway.

Nesta’s work with creative clusters illustrates the expansion in online data sources and analytical toolkits that are available. As the potential value of data has increased it has become more important to make the data available to users, using tools like interactive data visualisation and dashboards.
