Join us to celebrate the breadth and excellence of Bournemouth University’s research as part of Interdisciplinary Research Week this May. This is an opportunity to spark new collaborations and ideas among our diverse research community.
This year we have a week long programme of lectures, demonstrations, discussions and a film, which will showcase the fantastic research which is being undertaken at the university.
This is the seventh in a series of blog posts which will highlight the events you can join throughout the week. The seventh event of the programme will take place on Thursday 14th May, Digital transformations in communications have led to the increasing popularity of data visualisations and the use of maps and other multimedia interactives for representing complex data. Often, these visual data stories can better communicate the significance of research findings to policy-makers and the public. Beyond engendering greater comprehension, this turn to the visual can also tap into our emotions and cultural values. In this Masterclass, we will introduce the audience to the emerging interdisciplinary field of data storytelling research. Drawing on a range of contemporary examples, we will present a variety of techniques and technologies for creating data stories.
This event will take place on Talbot Campus in KG01 from 11.00pm 2.00pm, with lunch available from 12.30pm. You can book your place by clicking here.
