2017 Mid-Atlantic Region Meeting

Conference and Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA) Sessions

National Pilot Speaker:

Visual Analytics in the Classroom 
Chuck Hooper, Bialytics and Tableau Zen Master

Data visualization helps you see and understand data, to tell its story.  It is much more than just charts and graphs. Data visualization techniques, in many situations, can mitigate the need for advanced statistical knowledge. Products like Tableau provide easy and fast visual analysis for students and faculty as they try to find the real issues and opportunities in their data and communicate its insights. Let's look at ways we can incorporate visual analytics in ANY classroom, to better prepare students for their next steps in life!
