Summer Series on Data Presentation, Session #3: What Did
Dear CAN Members,

I hope to see you at next week's session on survey data.  Please forward this announcement to colleagues and friends who create, read or are interested in surveys (and really, who isn't?).

All the best,

-- Katie


==========================================================

Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to attend the third in our 8-session summer school series on Turning
Data into Information - Tools, Tips and Training.   The session is being hosted by the Cal Assessment Network (CAN).

What Did They Say?  Tools to Present Survey Data
Date:  Tuesday, July 6
Time:  10:30-12:00
Location:  60 Barrows

This session will be streamed and archived at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/can-at-berkeley.

Presenters
Gregg Thomson, Director, Office of Student Research and Campus Surveys
Greg Dubrow, Director, Research and Policy Analysis, Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Description
At this session, Gregg Thomson will provide concrete advice and tips on how best to present survey data.  He will discuss the considerations one should make and the tools that can be used to present quantitative and qualitative information such that it can be quickly understood and interpreted.  Greg Dubrow will then demonstrate a tool that can be used to summarize qualitative data called a WordCloud (www.wordle.net).

There will be time during the meeting for discussion and questions.  Materials used will be posted to the Institutional Data Management Initiative website and the CAN bSpace following the meeting. 

If you want to play along while the presentation is going on, please bring your laptop or a friend with a laptop.  This is not necessary, but an option as AirBears is available in the room.

Lunch
After the meeting, please join the presenters at the Faculty Club for a no-host lunch and the opportunity to continue the discussion.

Everyone welcome; no need to RSVP.
