Description

Within the SRCA framework at Sheridan there exist a wide range of ways that students, faculty and staff can engage with research, innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity. A key part of any research or project lifecycle is sharing the findings or outcomes with others. Typical ways of doing this include preparing reports, making charts or tables, or hosting presentations/exhibitions where people can listen to, or observe, the findings. There are, however, many other ways of approaching this challenge. This flash-talk presentation will introduce participants to some leading methods of data visualization, with the goal of inspiring the audience to think outside the box about how they might use some of these strategies to tell the ‘story’ of their research or creativity initiative, or enhance their pitches for any entrepreneurship endeavour. The presentation will also share resources available within Library and Learning Services that can help with this effort and will include examples from the Centre for Elder Research of ways to report on interdisciplinary applied research projects.

Comments
