Event Description:

Are you a faculty member interested in integrating data visualization techniques into your assignments? Join the Center for Teaching & Learning for an introduction to teaching with data, during which we will discuss some options and tools available to educators.

Reading and representing data is as relevant today in the humanities as the sciences. The quality and quantity of available data continues to grow. From the meta-tagging of archival texts for historians to the tracing of Twitter trends in sociology, we will discuss how to harness the pedagogical value of these emerging resources. We will explore trends in sourcing, integrating, and visualizing data, and offer suggestions and examples of how these skills can be introduced in the classroom. We will also examine the capacities of specific open-source visualization software that can be used by instructor and student alike. All levels of knowledge and skill are encouraged to attend!

Topics to be discussed:

  • Locating and accessing pre-existing reservoirs of data (e.g., census information).

  • Integrating and organizing this data into open source software platforms.

  • Manipulating this data into visually appealing representations.

  • Using data visualization to explore patterns.

  • Using visualized data as a tool for teaching complex subjects.

  • Visualizing how concepts are connected.

  • Modeling projections based on data.

Platforms and Data repositories to be discussed:

  • Gephi

  • NetLogo

  • Excel


  • CartoDB

  • NYC Open Data


  • (additional data sources?)
