Dataviz enriches the research and evaluation landscape

1 November 2017

Creative Consulting & Development Works (CC&DW) facilitated a well attended one-day workshop on Creative Data Visualisation at the recent 6th Biennial SAMEA Pre-Conference Capacity Building Series. Participants included South African local, provincial and national government representatives, international agencies and nonprofits, all looking to start their journey with data visualisation, aka “dataviz”.

CC&DW’s introductory workshop on Creative Data Visualisation is designed as a two-day course. It was tailored for the SAMEA conference into a one-day workshop to provide participants with a ‘taste’ of data visualisation. This course is designed to facilitate the start of participants data visualisation journey. It is specifically for those working in the field of research, monitoring and evaluation, including individuals involved in presenting data. Given the overwhelmingly positive feedback, CC&DW will be offering this course to the public, organisations and government departments in 2018.

Participants will be introduced to the key principles and theories behind the visualisation of data. Participatory exercises will encourage the application of creative data visualisation tools. Presenting data visually to effectively communicate to various audiences, with maximum impact, is the future. Join our team in 2018 at one of our upcoming creative data visualisation courses and start your exciting dataviz journey.

Quotes from Creative Data Visualisation workshop participants

Marethabile Maseela – World Vision Lesotho

The course was great. It’s something I wanted to know more about. I don’t think anything in regards to the course content should change. I would, however, want the course to be a two or three-day course. I was so re-charged from the course that I went out to buy books on data visualization and am reading them.

Phiwe Mncwabe – Gauteng Office of the Premier

The course was lovely. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I would recommend this course to my colleagues. It helped me to look at data creatively. I would like more time to do the course, I think it would be best to go through the exercises with the facilitator, than on my own. Overall it was a great workshop, I would suggest that we have more than one day, perhaps two to three days would be sufficient.

Ann-Lhyn – DPME

The course was very insightful. However, it was rather short. I wanted to do more practical work and if it were over two days, it would be even more amazing. I would definitely recommend it to my colleagues

Mpumelelo Mahlalela – Kwadukuza Municipality

I enjoyed the course because it was interactive, very useful, I have learnt a lot of new things from it. The resources shared with us are very constructive and provided insight based on the course. This is a constructive and mind-blowing course that I would love to recommend to my colleagues.
