VFF: Reflections on Uses of Spatiotemporal Visualization in a Humanities Classroom

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2015-10-16 16:00
Fri, Oct 16, 2015
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
LSRC D106
What happens when a syllabus is taken from the page and placed in an interactive visualization? How can students reimagine the structure and presentation of a humanities essay through spatiotemporal visualization? In Spring 2015, the teaching team and students in ARTHIST 101 Introduction to Art History explored both of these questions using Neatline, a plugin for the Omeka content management system. Neatline combines temporal, spatial, textual, and pictorial forms, enabling students and scholars to create interactive non-linear visual narratives. This course¿s use of a visual syllabus and visual essay assignments engaged students and readers with representations of art historical narratives that highlight spatial, temporal, and conceptual relationships.

The Visualization Friday Forum is an informal meeting for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Each week, a speaker is invited to prepare a 25-minute formal presentation for a 50-minute time slot. The formal presentation is centered on a scientific problem or visualization technique. Participants in the audience are encouraged to interrupt the speaker and engage in a discussion. The goal of the weekly meetings is to build an interdisciplinary community whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation.

DVS Workshop: Introduction to ArcGIS

Do you want to find out how geographic information (GIS) software can aid your research?  This class will provide an overview of how ArcGIS software can help you analyze or visualize digital data that has a locational component, as well as discuss starting points for obtaining data and ways for managing your GIS project.  Examples will focus on social science data, but attendees are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own needs and will be welcome to make one-on-one appointments later for more focused instruction.

SSRI~ Workshop: Introduction to Qualtrics Survey Software

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2015-10-15 16:00
Thu, Oct 15, 2015
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an introduction to Qualtrics survey software, a package available (at no cost to researchers) for use across Duke's campus and medical center. This powerful, easy-to-use system is a great way to collect information online, whether as part of a research protocol or for administrative purposes such as program evaluation. This workshop will introduce participants to the Qualtrics system, demonstrate how to set up an account, create a questionnaire and access its results. It will also cover some basic tools that can be used to customize the questionnaire to fit your needs, such as using display and skip logic to collect more detailed information from a subset of your audience. The workshop is taught through the Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology (DISM) in collaboration with the Duke Office of Information Technology (OIT). Participants will receive a very brief overview of the consulting and other services DISM offers to help Duke researchers develop and conduct surveys. The workshop itself will conclude at 1:30, with a half hour after that time for Q&A. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

SSRI~ Workshop: Effective Survey Design for Online, Paper, and Mixed-mode Questionnaires

Thu, Oct 15, 2015
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop examines questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires, such as screen layout and appearance, the use of images, and other aspects of the user interface which affect the accuracy of survey results. This course does not include programming, but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design for online and paper designs. It also considers the design issues involved in combing such modes can be combined with other data collection modes, i.e., in-person or telephone. The workshop will conclude at 1:30, with a half-hour allotted after that time for Q&A.Registration required; please click "More Information" below to access the registration form.

Thu, Oct 08, 2015
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This workshop provides an overview on the rationales and methods for qualitative data collection. Qualitative research methods, including in-depth interviews, focus groups, archival analysis, and participant observation, vary considerably in the resources and time required to execute them reliably, and in the types of data they generate. Which data collection techniques are appropriate to which kinds of research questions and projects, and how do you execute these methods well? How are issues of reliability and validity considered and weighed in qualitative research? This research workshop will provide an introduction to a range of qualitative research methods as well as an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Registration required; please click "more information" to access the registration form.

DVS Workshop: Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2015-10-07 17:30
Wed, Oct 7, 2015
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Bostock Library Room 023 (Library Classroom)
Tables of data, like those you see in spreadsheets or relational databases, are the foundation of most data-driven research today.  There are many pitfalls of working with these tables, though, that most people end up having to learn the hard way.  In this workshop, we'll take a dataset that has a variety of different properties and learn to work through many common steps of data-driven research to clean and begin analyzing the data.  We'll be using Excel to make sure the methods we suggest can be reproduced easily "at home," but many of these techniques are important for other data analysis tools as well. No data experience necessary.
