Data Interpret & Presentation

Increasingly, collecting, interpreting, and presenting data are core skills in effective international program administration. Not only is it vital to know what data tell us, but also to know what they do not indicate – before a bad decision is made based on incorrect interpretations! This course is designed to help students understand the basics of data interpretation and clear presentation of findings. The class also raises important questions about the opportunities and shortcomings of data, focusing on both qualitative and quantitative data. In addition, the course examines the promising ways to present findings (visualization) to deliver an accurate picture and compelling story across diverse audiences. The course is intended to work mostly with descriptive data and will not cover data analyses (e.g., statistical tests, coding). The course is conducted online, with both synchronous and asynchronous sessions.
