Faculty and staff are invited to learn the secrets of the power of data visualization from two of the most respected practitioners in the world during a free Ohio University “Visualize It” professional development day on Friday, August 21 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. in Baker Center Ballroom A.

Guest lecturers and workshop co-leaders Alberto Cairo, from the University of Miami, and John Grimwade, who joins the Scripps College of Communication’s School of Visual Communication this fall as an assistant professor, will provide a hands-on opportunity for anyone involved with graphically presenting data.

Participants can bring laptops, but they are not required. No prerequisites or special software knowledge is needed. Attendees should expect to learn in a fun atmosphere with lunch provided and a special networking reception immediately following.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and Scripps College of Communication.
