Data and Infographics

Join our online discussion group on navigating digital information – scroll down for registration link leading to the session on Zoom, Thursday, Apr. 8, 3:00 pm. 

This discussion group will explore topics including how to fact-check information, how to evaluate sources, and how to distinguish fact from opinion, and is moderated by Katherine Murphy.

Centered on the Crash Course YouTube series, Navigating Digital Information, here is what we will learn in Episode 8, Data and Infographics.

“Today, we’re going to discuss how numbers, like statistics, and visual representations like charts and infographics can be used to help us better understand the world or profoundly deceive. Data is a really powerful form of evidence because it can be absorbed quickly and easily, but neither data, nor interpretations of it, are neutral, so today we’re going to discuss how to think critically about the statistics we encounter in everyday life”.
