Description: Design represents a universal language that becomes increasingly dominant as technology lets us communicate across geographic boundaries. Amid the varied career paths our students will follow, it will be important for students to know how to visualize information as an added means of expression. This session was inspired by the presenter’s quantitative study involving 211 educators of varied roles and backgrounds, and her literature review summarizing over 300 sources. Participants will acquire a toolbox of resources and strategies to help students innovate through infographics and data visualization. The presenter’s two books on this topic will be released in early 2016.
