Science is often invisible: It remains hidden between book covers, in complicated technical terms or cryptic tables. In our seminar we want to change that and teach you how to visualize and animate your research. The aim is to learn how to prepare scientific results and abstract research topics for a non-specialist audience.

The virtual seminar covers basic design principles and methods for data visualisation. The seminar focuses on applying these principles to engaging visualisations of scientific information. Specific techniques and tools are practiced to visualise the participants’ own research projects.

In particular, the following topics will be covered: :

  • Basic design principles, resources and their applications
  • Defining the essential aspects: finding your own core message
  • Achieving more: Planning and sketching an infographic
  • Reaching the next level: discussing future workflows and aims
