Data Visualization Using Tableau: An Experiential Learning Competition
Data visualization has emerged as a powerful tool to quickly turn vast amount of data into useful insights with the help of advanced graphing techniques. Using a leading data visualization software – Tableau – we present a novel case that was conducted at a big public university in Florida USA. As a part of the case, four student teams comprised of undergraduate students were formed, trained in using Tableau for two weeks, and then made to compete at a conference. Students not only learn how to use data visualization software (Tableau) on real world data to create useful insights, but also how to communicate their knowledge to the professions attending the conference in an effective manner.
