Beyond the SEA Webinar: Make Your Point: Basic Principals of Data Visualization Design - NN/ML

Wednesday, February 17, 2016, 12:00 – 1:00 PM, Health Science Center Room C2-33

 

 

Data visualizations are everywhere these days: social media, infographics, data dashboards, and trendy organizational reports. A good data visualization communicates dense amounts of information quickly and effectively.  A bad one is a hodgepodge that creates confusion. To create effective data visualizations, you need to know the basic principals of chart design. These principals apply whether you are using sophisticated data visualization technology or tried-and-true Excel. In this webinar, we will describe a process for developing a chart that helps you make your point without making a mess.

 

Presenter Bios:

Cindy Olney is the Acting Assistant Director of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Outreach Evaluation Resource Center (NN/LM OERC). She has been a program evaluator for more than 25 years.

 

Karen Vargas is the Evaluation Specialist of the NN/LM OERC. Prior to joining the OERC in February 2015, she was the Outreach and Evaluation Coordinator for NN/LM South Central Regional Medical Library, located in the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library.

Strategies for leading online teams – Library Leadership & Management Association - LLAMA

Wednesday, February 17, 2016, 2:30 – 4:00 PM, Marston Science Library 136

 

 

As technology improves, much of our collaborative work takes place online. It’s a more sustainable choice than traveling for face to face meetings, but it does pose challenges for team leaders. How exactly does one go about leading an online team? And, how is it different from leading a team in person?

 

This webinar will feature a panel discussion by four librarians currently working in four-year higher education institutions. Each panelist has chaired and facilitated online teams for ACRL, ALA, various state and local committees, and within their own institutions.

 

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the main challenges to leading online teams in order to more successfully manage these issues.
  • Develop strategies to successfully manage and lead online teams.
  • Determine which online tools are the most appropriate in order to meet the needs of their meeting, project or event.
