Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This Data Vis Activities workshop is a sequel to our successful workshop at IEEE VIS 2020 [7], focusing on methods and challenges for teaching and engaging with data visualization concepts, knowledge,
and practices. Examples of such activities include sketching for design, constructing to learn, user interviews to elicit impressions and discussions to help developers understand requirements. Recent
years have seen the emergence of such data visualization activities and associated research in different contexts, including education, visualization design, activism, self-reflection, and interdisciplinary collaboration. While our 2020 half-day workshop focused on providing activity research a dedicated platform and on start building a community, this workshop will focus on i) creating, running, and reflecting on activities especially in online settings, ii) discussing higher-level issues in regards to activities, visualization education, and engagement, as well as iii) discussing concrete future steps to
build a permanent forum and community around these topics. Given that IEEE VIS 2021 is likely to run online, we design our workshop activities with an online setting in mind.
