Develop Your Infographic

A day of two halves, this is an opportunity for delegates to develop and create an infographic that they are currently working on. As the content of this workshop involves the practical application of the principles explored in the workshop 'Introduction to Infographics' it is a requirement that delegates have completed that workshop.

How the day will be structured:

Morning: Peer Review
In the first half of the day delegates will review their own work with peers, and have the opportunity to revise it.

Delegates should arrive with a fully fleshed out brief and sketch.

The brief is informed by the delegates story, the data or information they will be working with and where it's going to be published.

The visual needs to be no further developed than a sketch at this stage. However, please also bring along any reference material that has inspired your data.

Afternoon: Practical Tools
In the afternoon delegates will have the opportunity to create the infograhpic they have developed during the morning.

To ensure delegates make the best of the time available they should use software that is already loaded onto their laptop and ensure they are acquainted with a basic level at least. PowerPoint is the obvious choice.

Who should attend
The workshop is recommended for Research Active Staff (Research, Academic and Teaching terms and conditions) who have already attended the 'Introduction to Infographics' full day workshop. We do not accept applications from postgraduates or Research Students. Students should refer to the Student Career and Skills website for details of workshops designed specifically to meet their needs.
