Training

Both of the company’s founders—Juuso Koponen and Jonatan Hildén—are experienced educators. We have taught close to 200 individual courses and workshops during the past decade and a half. We both hold positions as visiting lecturers at several Finnish universities. We provide data visualization training for designers, communicators, researchers, and other experts. These consist both of open enrollment trainings for individuals, often organized together with partner organizations such as Aalto PRO, Aalto EE and HY+, and trainings or workshops for groups that are customized to each client’s specific needs.

Our custom training programs typically range from ½ to 2 days in length and can happen anywhere in the world, or online. The language of instruction can be English, Finnish or Swedish, depending on the need of the client. Our most popular custom training product is a 1-day “Introduction to data visualization” training that introduces the basics of creating clear and compelling charts to communicators and experts. We also teach beginner and intermediate level courses in the use of various specific visualization tools such as QGIS or Flourish, and organize co-creation workshops for developing new visualizations.
