Attend the Emerging Trends Lecture Series October 6, 2015

Dear Faculty,

The Emerging Trends lecture series offers tools to assist faculty with the use of technology in teaching. Emerging Trends is a partnership of the Office of the Provost and the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. We are grateful to Dr. Linda Davis, Director of Educational Technology in CLASS, and her group for their efforts and willingness to share this series with the University. The next talk is scheduled for Friday, October 9.

Leveraging GIS and Data Visualization in the Classroom
October 9, 2015
10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Kiva Room in Farish Hall
Presented by: Joshua Been, Social Science Data Librarian

Data visualizations serve as both a tool to explore data as well as a means to tell the stories inherent within data. Attendees will learn about available visualization and mapping tools, explore interactive data visualizations, and discover support services available at UH. Examples discussed will include GIS, interactive visualizations, and digital humanities.

Recordings of past presentations can be found here.

Warm regards,

Paula Myrick Short
