The Challenge of Teaching Data Visualization - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

  • Uploaded on

This is our proposal to SXSW Interactive 2015! Please vote for us at http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote Summary: As the demand for producing high-quality data visualizations grow, so does the demand for high-quality instruction. How can students combine statistics, design, and programming to understand and visualize data? Courses in data visualization are now being offered in a wide array of fields: journalism, computer science, art, and public policy, to name a few. And in addition to traditional learning settings such as universities, online courses are allowing more people to learn these skills, but also create new questions about the most effective ways to teach these skills. In this panel, we propose to discuss the challenges surrounding teaching data visualization, a topic that is receiving increased attention and scrutiny (see, for example, this recent Data Stories podcast: http://datastori.es/ds37-teaching-visualization-w-scott-murray-and-andy-kirk/).

    i m not a teacher only a fellow traveler of whom

    I’m not a teacher; only a

    fellow traveler of whom

    you asked the way.

    I pointed ahead – ahead of

    myself as well as you.

    - George Bernard Shaw
