Naomi RobbinsSeton Hall University is pleased to welcome Naomi B. Robbins, Ph.D., to campus on Monday, March 24 at 6 p.m. Dr. Robbins will present “How to Convey Your Data Clearly with Graphs” in the McNulty Amphitheater. The presentation will provide tips and expert advice that will be immediately useful for undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty from a variety of disciplines. The event is co-sponsored by the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, the Department of Psychology, and the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies.  

Dr. Robbins’ presentation will not be software-specific. Her tips and techniques are designed to help users across all levels, regardless of method of graphical presentation. According to Dr. Robbins, “It does not matter whether you’re calculating baseball statistics or conducting government data analysis. I’ll show you how small changes can make big differences in your presentation of data.” Further, “I’ll show graphs that do not communicate clearly and then redesign them to show how they can be more effective. The changes may be very slight, but you’ll notice how they can make a big difference in the understanding.”  

Dr. Robbins is an experienced author, speaker, and consultant. She currently serves as the principal of NBR, an organization that provides consulting and training for effective graphical data presentation. In 2013, she republished Creating More Effective Graphs, originally published by John Wiley and Sons. To learn more about Dr. Robbins and her work, visit http://www.nbr-graphs.com. Join us on Monday, March 24, 2014 at 6 p.m. in the McNulty Amphitheater and learn “How to Convey Your Data Clearly with Graphs.”
