Facilitated by the UTS Library Digital and Data Literacy team.

Using data to tell stories is an essential communication skill for researchers. In this beginner’s session, the Library will present on the various ways in which you can explore and visualise data, from simple web applications through to complex code driven techniques.

Following the presentation we will explore a simple Excel dataset using Microsoft Power BI, which allows you to build interactive dashboards of graphs, maps and text. 

Prework for this class is to download Microsoft Power BI Desktop, which is free to all enrolled staff and students of UTS. A limited amount of laptops will be brought to the session but if you can BYO laptop then please do.

There is a spreadsheet that we'll use when we play with Power BI in class. Please download the spreadsheet from sharepoint and then file>save to your computer. 
Please be aware that currently Power BI is available on PC only. 

Academics, research students and support staff are welcome to attend, in particular those working with quantitative data.

Bookings required. Bookings can be made on the UTS Futures Blog.
