Dodging Dreadful Diagrams through Discerning Design Feb 3, 2017 Description: Well-designed diagrams aren’t just pretty; they convey information and aid understanding by working in concert with human perception. The problem is that effective design isn’t intuitive – we may feel like we know it when we see it, but producing compelling work ourselves takes some training that not many of us have had. The good news is that with a bit of guidance, we can quickly make large improvements in what we produce and recognize how to improve what we’ve created in the past. In this workshop you will see how designers transform reality to increase explanatory power, learn a few core principles of good graphic design, and practice visual brainstorming and critique for more creative, clear communication. There are no prerequisites – the session will combine lecture, discussion, and hands-on paper and pencil activities.

Developed with the notion of making it easy to collaboratively write, cite, host, and publish as well as to share data in the same document online, Authorea also assists in the creation of mixed format documents including LaTeX, markdown, and richtext. Authorea is aimed at the portion of the research cycle from writing a first draft through to submission for publishing, and is used in a diverse set of fields from physics to cognitive science.
