Proposal for a session in which you offer to teach a skill, either a “hard” skill or a “soft” skill.

Creating interactive visualizations with Tableau Public II

Continuing from Sara Brumfield’s not-to-be-missed Teaching Session on Creating interactive visualizations with Tableau Public I

This session will have you playing with filters, controls, linked tables, scatter plots, regression lines, and more. Most fun of all, we will play around with parameters and calculated fields.

Plan: Each of us will develop a web-based tool using Tableau Public that can be used by researchers to determine how correlated socio-economic and geographic indicators are to 2016 Presidential election patterns in Texas. (Note here that we are building an educational tool, a learning object allowing others to explore this question. We are not answering the question ourselves.)
