Introduction to Tableau for Data Visualization (Online Workshop)

Tableau is a data visualization program that offers both quick and flexible methods of visualizing your data in a variety of ways, including through interactive dashboards. Offering ways to explore your dataset as well as explain it, Tableau combines ease of use and powerful options for engaging your audience with interesting visualizations. In this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn about the different types of Tableau that exist and how they can access the program (for free).
  • Discover the Tableau interface and learn how to import and connect data to Tableau itself.
  • Explore how to quickly visualize data with different chart types (line and bar charts, scatter plots, maps, and more) and through dashboards (adding some interactivity between your visualizations).
  • Learn how to format and make adjustments to titles, axis titles, colors, marks and shapes, and more.
  • Export your Tableau visualization for use in other tools and programs like PowerPoint and Adobe Illustrator.
  • Interact with other resources like Tableau Public’s Gallery and knowledge bank to help learn about Tableau beyond this workshop.

Please note that this workshop will allow for hands-on participation. Participants will need to download free Tableau Public software at https://public.tableau.com/en-us/s/download
