I wanted to share details of a new longer-form data visualisation training course I am delivering for methods@manchester in July as part of their summer school 2019 series of training courses. The course will be held at the Oxford Road campus of the University of Manchester, and will run for four days in total but held over five days across Monday 8th to Friday 12th July: the first and last of those dates are half-days, with the rest of the week being full-day sessions.
You can find out more about this course, including details of pricing, registration and travel/accommodation information here.
The longest format training I usually deliver is a two-day event but I have been keen to look at a longer format to delve deeper into some of the key topics that benefit from such coverage and also incorporate sufficient time to explore more ambitious practical activities.
Methods@manchester is an initiative funded by the University of Manchester, highlighting the University's strength in research methods in the social sciences and promoting interdisciplinary and innovative methodological developments. One of the great opportunities offered by collaborating with the methods team is the chance to work with local partner organisations. For the event in July, we will be partnering with colleagues from the 'Manchester Museum and Galleries Partnership', comprising Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester Museum, and the Whitworth, to create some creative practical challenges, with real data and problem contexts, to help apply what has been learnt during the course. This is what I am most excited about for this course especially.
The course is open to anyone and everyone: just because it hosted by and held at the University doesn't mean you have to be a student or in academia. That said, there are discounted rates for students (£600), University of Manchester staff (£600), compared to the standard rate for any other attending delegate (£900).
You can book your place now using the University's eStore.
If you have any questions about the course, please feel free to get in touch.
