Winter Conference 2020: Teaching Data Visualization

11 December 2020

Having students include graphs, maps, and other charts in their homework or final projects is an engaging way to view content from another perspective, synthesize content or research findings, and teach disciplinary conventions. In this session, we discussed using visualization for “exploration” of information as well as “explanation”, strategies for working data visualization into your existing curriculum, and examples from Carleton courses. Whether you want students to create better charts for course assignments, final papers or posters, or oral presentations, this session helped refine goals and create a scaffolded experience for students.

Organizers: Lin Winton, Director of the Quantitative Resource Center, and Doug Foxgrover, Academic Technologist
