The Visualization Friday Forum seminar series is a forum for faculty, staff and students from across the university (and beyond Duke) to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Our goal is to build an interdisciplinary community of visualization experts whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation. Anyone is welcome to attend.

Design + Code + Culture = Play "Bonne Chance"

West Campus

Held in the Link Classroom 6, West Campus, Duke University.  Learning languages through or with gaming is not a new in and and of itself.  What makes the "Bonne Chance" project unique is that we are trying to teach French through designing a game instead of simply playing it.  Through an interdisciplinary approach to modern software development, students from multiple academic bacgrounds with varying experience levels are able to work together in a cross-functional community.  Language and culture immersion is being explored in a new technological and educational realm by applying game-based learning mechanics to an elementary French language curriculum.

Curriculum Mapping: How and Why

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2019-03-28 13:00
Perkins 218
West Campus

New faculty liaisons often report that they don’t know how to get started in assessment. And it’s common for both new and established liaisons to report some confusion about what the program actually should be assessing. This can threaten liaisons’ confidence and self-efficacy, even though the actual work of assessment generally is quite straightforward. Enter the curriculum map

This session explains curriculum maps as a graphical illustration of student learning across experiences. Both an organizational schema and a communications device, the curriculum map clarifies what happens within a program of study. It can reveal redundancies of instruction, opportunities for new courses and programming, and important moments for the assessment of learning. In a nutshell, it can help a program get organized and get started. The session will include specific instructions for various approaches to curriculum mapping.

This event is sponsored by Trinity Office of Assessment. Contact Jennifer Hill (jlh9@duke.edu) for more information.

Coffee and light pastries will be provided.

Visible and Invisible Identities: Why LGBTQ Representation Matters in STEM

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2019-03-27 17:00
Other (see event description)
West Campus

There is increasing recognition that LGBTQ scientists face significant barriers, both implicit and structural, when pursuing careers in STEM fields. These barriers have some similarities but also substantial differences to challenges that women and underrepresented ethnic minorities face, but the effect is the same: the systematic attrition of talented scientists from STEM careers weakens science as a whole. This presentation will examine the justification for increased inclusion through the lens of LGBT identity and will offer some thoughts on what some key barriers might be.

Speaker: Professor Tehshik Yoon University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Chemistry

Hosted by: Department of Chemistry Diversity and Inclusion Committee 

Location: French Family Science Center 2237
