Wonderful Wednesdays

Our monthly webinar explores examples of innovative data visualisations relevant to our day to day work. Each month a new dataset is provided from a clinical trial or other relevant example, and participants are invited to submit a graphic that communicates interesting and relevant characteristics of the data.


This is a good opportunity to develop your knowledge by thinking through a practical example, practicing how to apply graphics principles, and developing your coding skills. Or you could just attend the webinar, view the submitted graphs and listen to the panel discussion.
