Tue, Feb 28, 2017
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an overview of program evaluation, or the systematic investigation of the merit, worth, or significance of a program. Topics covered will include: when and why to conduct evaluation; types of evaluations; key aspects of an evaluation, including logic model development, data sources and data collection, analysis and reporting, and guiding resultant programmatic change; and tips for feasibly and effectively implementing evaluation at a program or organization. This workshop focuses on evaluation from the perspective of programs or organizations and will be of particular interest to people working in such settings who are looking to learn more about evaluation, but it is also relevant to undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, or other researchers who are interested in evaluation and applied research. Registration required; please click "More Information" below to access the registration form.

Visualizing Qualitative Data

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-02-28 18:30
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy.  For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons.  This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects.  Exercises will help attendees work through the process of developing visualizations for sample qualitative projects.  The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of identifying possible visual elements within a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.

"The Blood of Emmett Till"

Please join us at the Franklin Humanities Institute for a "Faculty Bookwatch" event to celebrate Tim Tyson's new book The Blood of Emmett Till (Simon & Schuster, 2017). "Part detective story, part political history, Timothy Tyson's The Blood of Emmett Till revises the history of the Till case, not only changing the specifics that we thought we knew, but showing how the murder ignited the modern civil rights movement. Tyson uses a wide range of new sources, including the only interview ever given by Carolyn Bryant; the transcript of the murder trial, missing since 1955 and only recovered in 2005; and a recent FBI report on the case. In a time where discussions of race are once again coming to the fore, The Blood of Emmett Till redefines a crucial moment in civil rights history." Co-sponsored by the Duke University Libraries, Faculty Bookwatch is an annual program at FHI that celebrates and promotes interdisciplinary conversations on major recent books by Duke humanities faculty. Each Bookwatch program brings together a panel of distinguished colleagues giving brief comments on the significance and impact of the featured book. The author will be on hand to offer responses and engage with the wider audience. Following the event, there will be a public reception and book sale.

Designing Academic Figures and Posters

Bostock 023 Training Room

Figures and other forms of visual representation can have a huge impact on the communication of research to a broader audience.  A well designed figure can summarize research, captivate audience interest, and/or explain complicated phenomena and processes.  Likewise, becoming familiar with good strategies for poster design allows researchers to take full advantage of the opportunity to network with colleagues and promote their own research.  This workshop will cover basic considerations for designing effective academic figures and posters, including use of color, layout, fonts/typography, and software choices.
