Psych 314: Presenting Data & Ideas

Psych 314: Presenting Data & Ideas

T/Th 12:30-1:50pm, Harris 107

Prof. Steven Franconeri

* No pre-reqs.

Course Description:

Brains can be surprisingly limited in how much they can process and store at once. But presenters, explainers, and writers too often ignore these limits. This course will survey techniques for presenting ideas and data in a manner that is engaging, clear, and memorable. The techniques will be grounded in an understanding of cognitive psychology – why our brains are limited in perceiving, learning, and storing information – as well as research in data visualization, and principles of graphic design. Course grading will be based on projects, discussion board postings, quizzes on readings, class attendance, and peer critiques.

Required text: Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic. Storytelling with Data, Wiley Press, 2015

Last year (Prof. Franconeri 314; Winter ’15), this course was rated 5.3/6 on CTEC, and 5.6/6 for instruction. (It’s the same course, previously called “Show & Tell”).
