About the course: During this year's Learning Analytics and Visual Analytics (LAVA) project, you will systematically design and implement interactive visualizations of an educational dataset of your choice, following the Human-Centered Design (HCD) process proposed by Norman (2013) and the What-Why-How visualization analysis framework proposed by Munzner (2014). You will organize yourselves in groups of 4. In the first few weeks of the lab, we will provide a general overview on HCD and visualization libraries (e.g. D3.js). There will be weekly tasks which include:

  • Reading, presenting, and discussing selected chapters from the Visualization Analysis and Design book (Munzner, 2014)
  • Project presentations (ideas/concepts, prototypes, end product, demos)
  • Writing a project report in the form of a scientific article
