Crystal clear reports, slides, and graphs are valuable – they save an audience’s mental energies, keep a reader engaged, and make you look smart. In this meeting, Stephanie Evergreen will discuss the science behind presenting data effectively and will leave the audience with direct, pointed changes that can be immediately administered to their own conference presentations and other evaluation deliverables. The talk will touch on principles of data visualization, slideshow, and report design that support legibility, comprehension, and retention of our data in the minds of our clients. Grounded in visual processing theory, the principles will enhance attendees’ ability to communicate more effectively – the last frontier of evaluation use.
Stephanie Evergreen runs Evergreen Data, a data presentations consulting firm, and is the eLearning Initiatives Director for the American Evaluation Association (AEA). Her dissertation focused on the extent of cognition-based graphic design in evaluation reports. Evergreen is the founder and past chair of AEA’s Data Visualization and Reporting Topical Interest Group. She publishes a well-read blog at stephanieevergreen.com and her book Presenting Data Effectively will be published by Sage in Fall 2013
