Training: Data Visualization

There has been a change in dates for the Data Visualization workshop.

The training will be held on October 13-14 @ 1-3 PM (EDT) instead of September 21-22, 2020.


We are pleased to propose another training as part as our series: Training by BIOS² Fellows!

Katherine Hébert and Alex Arkilanian we will be offering a training session on Data Visualization (in English) to be held on October 13-14 from 1-3 PM (EDT).

The training will be split into two sessions, which will covers the general principles of visualization and graphic design, and techniques of tailored visualization. Each training will take the form of a presentation interspersed with several short activity modules, where participants will be invited to use the tools we will be discussing to practice their data visualization skills.

Training: Science Communication

Thank you to BIOS² Fellows Gracielle Higino and Katherine Hébert, we will be offering a series of two webinars on Science Communication!

The objective of this training is to share and discuss the concepts and tools that contribute to effective science communication. The training will be split into two sessions, which will cover the basic concepts of effective science communication and how social media tools can be used to boost the signal of your research and extend your research network. Each training will take the form of a presentation interspersed with several short activity modules, where participants will be invited to use the tools we will be discussing to kickstart their own science communication.

Training: Summer School in Biodiversity changes and data visualization

**** Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the summer school will be postponed to a future date (fall 2020 or spring 2021), depending on the return to normal public activities. ****
