Alberto Cairo to Guest Teach Visualizing Information Workshop
Alberto Cairo, author of The Functional Art, an Introduction to Information Graphics and Visualization will be guest teaching a workshop, Visualizing Information, December 7 and 8 at the George S. Turnbull Center.
The workshop will cover the principals of data visualization and offer examples of how to apply those examples to the real world. By the end of the workshop students should have the ability to turn complex material into compelling visuals, which Cairo explains will let “readers access the stories that hide behind the data sets.”
When he is not teaching at the University of Miami, Cairo is touring throughout Europe, Brazil and the U.S. presenting and teaching workshops on the growing importance of information visualization.
