Visualization research gets good press in Science Daily

My recent publication,¬†When a Picture Isn’t Worth 1000 Words: Learners Struggle to Find Meaning in Data Visualizations,¬†got a great press release from UF/IFAS, which was picked up by Science Daily. I got a wonderful email from UF News¬†alerting me to the pickup! Now I’m curious whether it was the research, the title (in which I tried to convey my results in case that’s all people read, per lessons from OSU’s Free Choice Learning Lab), or the press release that drew the attention?

Wrap-up from a year as eXtension’s Citizen Science Fellow

I just wrapped up a year working with eXtension.org as a Citizen Science Fellow, trying to understand and support citizen science efforts throughout Cooperative Extension. Read all about my findings here. You can also go straight to the resources I compiled here. I welcome your feedback either here or on the original posts. It was a privilege to take such a deep dive into the topic, and I look forward to integrating citizen science more in my own work.
