Data Visualization Fellowship Collaboration Between Duke Libraries and the Master in Interdisciplinary Data Science
- provide data visualization consultations for the Libraries’ Data and Visualization Services in the Fall 2019 semester
- serve as teaching assistants in the MIDS data visualization course in the Spring 2020 semester
- provide data visualization consultations for MIDS Capstone projects in the Spring 2020 semester
Following successful completion of the training, students will be compensated for the time they spend consulting or serving as a TA using hourly rates approved by their home department or, if this is consistent with their and their department’s needs, through a TA-ship. In addition, MIDS will:
- fund travel to one data visualization conference
- provide additional funding for travel to one data visualization conference per additional year served as a TA/consultant (i.e., the first additional such funding will become available to the student after spring semester, 2020)
The training curriculum will focus on core visualization tools in use at Duke such as Tableau, R, and Python, but the training team will support students who are interested in learning other tools and methodologies as well. We will give preference to training students who have a specific data visualization project they are motivated to complete, ideally related to their graduate/dissertation work, but all current PhD students are eligible.
To apply, please send your CV to Alexandra Cooper (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition, please send a cover letter describing why you want to train in data visualization, what kind of data visualization experience you currently have, and the depth of your data analysis, modeling, and wrangling skills. Applications are due by March 1st, but will be considered on a rolling basis. Please send questions to Joel Herndon (email@example.com

Stephanie Evergreen will be visiting Duke on the morning of Monday, May 16 to teach a half-day visualization workshop. This workshop will be co-sponsored by the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT) and the Duke Digital Initiative (DDI) and will be targeted to teaching faculty (at Duke) who are considering incorporating visualizations into courses.
The workshop will cover basic visualization design techniques. It will not presume any pre-existing knowledge of visualization, and faculty do not need to have concrete ideas for how to use visualization in their courses in order to attend. For a few ideas on how visualizations might be incorporated into courses, see the visualization section of the recent DDI Call for Proposals.
Faculty Workshop on Visualization Design
Monday, May 16
9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (lunch will be served)
The Edge Workshop Room (Bostock Library)
The instruction portion of the workshop will last from 9:00 a.m. to noon. At noon, attendees will participate in a Duke-specific discussion on the challenges of incorporating visualization into courses. Lunch will be served. Attendance at the lunch discussion is expected for all workshop attendees.
