Vivomotion Training Sessions

We have the following training sessions from Vivomotion that may be of interest, to you or others.


Data Visualisation – An Introduction

Data Visualisation is a huge field, and many researchers don’t know where to begin to find new ways to present their results.

By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Know the design process involved in creating a data visualisation/infographic.
  • Be aware of several on-line tools available for data visualisation.
  • Be able to design novel data visualisations/ infographics for your research topic.


This 2.5 hour workshop will serve as an introduction to the vast field of data visualisation. Highlighting on-line tools, you will learn how to tell stories with your data. Examples of unique data visualisation projects will be shown for inspiration. Designing communications that appeal on an aesthetic level is important no matter what discipline you work in. This workshop will look at how data can be turned into compelling visual stories, including flat graphic design (infographics).

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of good visual storytelling.
  • Designing and presenting graphs and charts to maximise their impact.
  • Examples of good practice.

Please note: Although different visualisation software options will be discussed during the workshop, this is not a software-training course.


Animation for Research Dissemination

Engaging a lay audience on social media is a new challenge faced by academics.

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Have written and recorded a script describing your research.
  • Have sketched out a storyboard.
  • Know how to proceed to complete production of your animation.


This 2.5 hour workshop will teach researchers how to produce a 2 minute 2D white board animation describing their research which can then be shared on social media platforms.

Topics covered include:

  • The importance of good visual storytelling.
  • Scriptwriting.
  • Voiceover production.
  • Story boarding.
  • Animation production.
