Our colleagues at Columbia University Libraries have posted video from the recent presentation on "The Ethics of Visualization" with speaker Chris Alen Sula, Assistant Professor and Digital Humanities Coordinator at Pratt Institute School of Information & Library Science. The event, held on December 12th, was part of Columbia Libraries Digital Program Division and the Digital Humanities Center lecture series. More info on the session can be found on the presentation web page:
The video is available on Columbia's YouTube channel.
METRO was also pleased to host Chris at the METRO Training Center for a daylong "Introduction to Information Visualization" workshop on December 11th. This event featured a morning lecture covering the basic principles of visualization design and best practices, along with a hands-on lab session in the afternoon where participants could experiment creating visualizations using free web-based tools. Attendees were highly enthusiastic in their feedback on the session and desire for additional offerings on this exciting topic. Stay tuned for news of a possible follow-on workshop coming up at METRO this spring.
