Post-ALE Training – The Art and Science of Producing Effective Infographics



Prerequisite: Learners should be familiar with evaluation methods and have basic skills in Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel.

Aligned to the theme Skills for Now and the Future, this half-day workshop teaches participants how to become better communicators of evaluation findings. The communication our findings needs to change to become more clear, succinct and impactful. Effective data visualization helps us to do so. We will focus on infographics to communicate insights. Orientating infographics in data visualization, we shift briefly to the science of why we should use infographics in communicating to our audiences. We will focus on a step-by-step process to create infographics, including design elements of graphics (incl. charts); colour; and font. These provide the visual cues to our most important element: data. Participants will learn to create better charts using simple techniques and efficiencies. We then put these elements together with examples and look at resources and tools for infographic production.
