Recently Akvo launched a new tool for data connecting, transforming and visualizing - Akvo Lumen (you can read more about it here https://akvo.org/blog/launching-akvo-lumen/). Part of that launch included also an internal capacity training in data analysis. We realized that in order to support our partners in the process of analyzing data we need data experts in every hub. We are in the middle of the training now, with 3 webinars and learning session already behind us. It's amazing how fast motivated people learn how to deal with data! This is the modules that we have planned: Module 0: Introduction to data and Data Research Module 1: Assessing data quality - Understand the project and the data Module 2: Basic data understanding - Data preparation with tips and tricks in R Module 3: Exploring data visually and visualisations according to data type Module 4: Cleaning Flow data in R Module 5: Basic storytelling with data So far we went through module 0, 1 and 2 which are concluding the basic training. In 2018 we will follow up with the other three modules to start on the more advanced data analysis.
