Panel: Perspectives on Teaching Data Visualization (Best Panel Award). Jason Dykes, Daniel F. Keefe, Gordon Kindlmann, Tamara Munzner, Alark Joshi. IEEE VisWeek 2010 (2010)
Best Panel Award
We propose to present our perspectives on teaching data visualization to a variety of audiences. The panelists will address issues related to increasing student engagement with class material, ways of dealing with heavy reading load, tailoring course material based on the audience and incorporating an interdisciplinary approach in the course. Developing and teaching truly interdisciplinary data visualization courses can be challenging. Panelists will present their experiences regarding courses that were successful and address finer issues related to designing assignments for an interdisciplinary class, textbooks, collaboration-based final projects.
