Previous event: Data Visualization, Data Literacy, and Keeping Current

December 7, 2018
University of Connecticut
10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Thanks to all our attendees and presenters!

Agenda for the day

We'll be meeting in University of Connecticut's Visualization Studio, Room 1101 of the Homer Babbidge Library.

The morning event will consist of two presentations, focusing on the newly installed hoylu, as well as a perspective on visualization needs from the view of a lab.

In honor of our tenth roundtable, we'll spend the afternoon focusing on hearing back from you: both through a series of lightning talks that focus on what you do, and how you do it, and a roundtable focusing on reflection.

Lightning talks will be no longer than five minutes, and you'll be allowed one slide to support your statements. Our theme is "A day in the life" -- what is something you do, and how do you do it?

Some ideas for lightning talk topics include:

  • Engagement strategies
  • Tools you use
  • Workflows you have developed (interviews, repository, etc.)
  • Instruction ideas, successes, challenges, or stories
  • DMP consultations and approaches
  • Data literacy concepts and applications in your work
  • Or something else that's exciting to you!
This is your time to shine! We'd love to hear more about you as a member of our community. Sign up here. If you have further questions please email Thea Atwood:

Finally, please note there is a charge for parking. Parking in the South Garage is $12 for 7 hours, with a max charge of $15. You can find more information about parking at UConn at the UConn Parking Services page.
