Centre For The Advancement Of Science And Mathematics Education (CASME)
Have you ever felt overwhelmed at a messy excel spreadsheet or wondered how to create meaningful reporting and interactive visualisations for the data you work with? At this workshop we will cover the data pipeline - in other words how to find, clean, analyse and visualise data- to take data from a spreadsheet, list or table and turn it into something usable by our intended audience and ourselves.
About the Presenter:
