Level-up your Tableau skills with this series of four, two-hour sessions with structured activities to help you practice more advanced data handling, analysis and visualization concepts and techniques. Starting with a quick review of concepts and techniques covered in the Tableau I – The Basics workshop series, participants will then build more complex charts and visualizations as they learn to:

  • Marry data from disparate sources using relationships, joins, unions, and blends. Create data extracts to improve performance.
  • Leverage parameters to enhance interactivity and improve the user experience.
  • Create dynamic and fixed sets to compare and contrast data.
  • Construct Level of Detail (LOD) Expressions to control granularity within a view. Use LODs to build a histogram and perform a cohort analysis.
  • Use the analytics pane to add reference lines, distributions, bands, and more.
  • Assemble dashboards which incorporate best practices for visualizing data.

Who: Ohio State faculty, graduate student, postdoc and staff researchers who are Tableau intermediate level users.
When: Tuesdays, October 5, 12, 19, 26 from 1 – 3 p.m.; Optional review session: Thursday, Sept. 30 from 1 – 2 p.m.
