Since I’ve been falling off on my weekly photo posts, I figure I’ll start a weekly work series. While that doesn’t seem to make sense . . . it does. I am really bad about keeping track of the good things, the progress, the little bits that add up. I am very good at looking […]

An exercise in simple data visualization

by

slide02
Data visualization.  It’s a buzzword we hear frequently, usually in connection to other buzzwords like big data, business intelligence, dashboards, and accountability.  However, data visualization doesn’t have to be a buzzword.  As a concept, it can be quite simple: it is the act of collecting information and displaying it in ways that illuminate while allowing for...

This is an exciting time for me; in academic circles we talk about how certain conferences bring out all of “our people.”  For me, #opened16 is that conference.

To make matters worse, some of them would start sentences with pedagogy and... […]
