Data Engagement: Data Visualization Lab at Washington State University Spokane

The goal of the project is to improve the value of research produced by students, faculty, and staff at WSU Spokane. In order to reach this goal, we will 1 create a data visualization lab that allows people involved in research to learn about data visualization software; 2 teach 10 hands-on workshops on the use of key data visualization software to improve 133s' ability to use these programs with their data; 3 hold data consultations upon request to help 133s with their data-related questions; and 4 provide open drop-in hours to allow 133s to explore and practice data visualization techniques. With these activities, we will see a increased ability of data visualization lab users to use data visualization software; b that those 133s will use their increased skills to improve the visual displays of the data generated by their research; and c these users will use these skills to increase the value of their research to the university and the community.
