A Biostatistics Short Course

A six-week short course for researchers or students wanting to learn more about foundations and applications of data visualization. The course has three segments with 2 lectures each. The first segment introduces visualization foundations and discusses general design principles for creating effective visual representations. The second segment covers the visualization of two common data types (multidimensional data and network data), along with tools for visualizing and analyzing tabular and network data. The third segment covers interactive data exploration in the context of time series and text data, and the use of visual representations for communication and storytelling. Coding skills are not required for this course.​

This is different from Fundamentals of Data Science and is a great companion to the course in theme and information although they are not connected nor is one a prerequisite for the other.
