Kyle WalkerIn recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in interactive data visualization, spurred by new, innovative frameworks for creating dynamic, data-driven graphics for display on the web.  Practitioners have applied such interactive visualizations in a variety of fields, including the humanities, sciences, journalism, and business.  In this workshop, I will discuss the pedagogical utility of interactive data visualization in the classroom.  I will draw from my experiences using interactive graphics to teach social science concepts in my Population and World Regional Geography courses.  I’ll be addressing the benefits of using interactive charts and maps as opposed to static images how students have responded to interactive content in the classroom and some cautions to take when using such visualizations.  I’ll introduce attendees to resources where they can find interactive graphics and maps for use in their own teaching.  The workshop will also include brief tutorials for attendees about how to create their own interactive visualizations using tools that are freely available to TCU faculty, staff, and students.
