In partnership with the CDC and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), Excella developed a virtual learning series on Creating Meaningful Data Visualizations for MMRIA users.
The curriculum is designed to provide a self-paced learning experience teaching fundamental principles of data visualization design through the lens of a MMRIA data analyst or user. The course guides viewers through a hands-on learning experience centered on how to develop static charts, graphs, and illustrations with sample MMRIA data and use cases for illustrative audiences.
- Modules 1-6 are anchored by an instructional video teaching core concepts of data visualization design using sample MMRIA data.
- Modules 2-4 also include hands-on practice examples using Excel, PowerPoint, and a web-based data visualization tool, Sankeymatic. These hands-on components allow viewers to practice putting the principles into action using a familiar data set.
