Virtual Scholars’ Studio – Six graduate student research presentations
Thursday, November 19th, 4 – 5:30 pm.

Register Online

Hosted by the UW Libraries Research Commons and Core Programs in the Graduate School, Scholars’ Studio is a quarterly event featuring up to 10 short presentations (5 minutes each) by UW graduate students and postdocs. Each quarter we invite proposals for talks on a theme, in order to encourage the cross-disciplinary sharing of research. The event is fast paced and fun. It includes a Q&A with presenters, and a reception. Presenters receive feedback on their presentations through feedback forms distributed to audience members. Scholars’ Studio is an excellent opportunity for grad students looking to make connections and build presentation skills. The fall 2020 Scholars’ Studio event will be a virtual event.

Better than Best Practices: Inclusive Data Visualization
Thursday, November 19th, 1:30-3:00pm

Data visualization design “best practices” often do not prioritize (or outright reject) efforts to be inclusive. This workshop will establish new “best practices” and provide an opportunity to test them out in a visualization. Data visualization experience is not required, though some familiarity with accessing and using spreadsheet software may be helpful. This workshop will not be recorded.
