the challenge of teaching data visualization

You want to increase your skills when it comes to creating effective, captivating, and informative data visualizations. I want to teach you. But with this, comes certain challenges. It is these challenges that I hope to discuss in a SXSW 2015 panel (along with three expert colleagues: Jon Schwabish of, Kaiser Fung of Junk Charts, and Ben Schneiderman of University of Maryland).

But we need your help.

Over 3,000 proposals have been submitted for SXSW Interactive. Obviously, only a fraction of these will be chosen for sessions. Public voting accounts for about 30% of the decision making process. That's where you come in.

Please take 20 seconds to vote for our session by clicking the button below (which will prompt you to create an account before voting if you haven't already - it's super fast, I promise).
