Compelling ways to communicate your research

Fourth Floor Community Gallery

Infographics tend to focus on one or two key points extracted from the data (or qualitative research points), not all of the data. Infographics are custom drawn/designed and are more aesthetically pleasing than other visualizations. Infographics can also convey abstract ideas or be used to entertain. Infographics usually target specific audiences. Infographics can contain data visualizations (charts, maps, diagrams).

Prof. Theodora Danylevich’s Spring 2022 students in WGST 239.03 "Medicine, Race, and Gender" and WRIT 015.09 "Composing Disability Access @Georgetown: Intersectionality, Access, and the Rhetoric of our Values" produced infographics accompanying their final projects, with support from our Digital Scholarship Librarian, Megan Martinsen

WGST 239.02 students collaborated on editing and improving (and in one case, creating) Wikipedia articles relating to health inequities and bias in medicine. They created infographics as an accessible, multimodal aspect of their final presentation covering the information that they added, picking out some key points to share visually.

WGST 015.09 students worked in small groups to investigate accessibility at Georgetown in a variety of areas, and created proposals for improving accessibility in a range of ways for variously marginalized members of our student population. Each group took care to adhere to accessibility guidelines in creating their infographics that communicated a central aspect of their proposal.
