Thanks for an amazing conference Madison! We had wonderful keynotes anchoring our conference sessions.
|Michael Gleischer’s keynote on Shakespeare and Data Visualization got us thinking about how data visualization techniques might be able to help us see communication acts – including Shakespeare’s – in different ways, and about fruitful collaborations with other disciplines. That kicked off a productive Monday full of interesting and inspiring conference sessions, leaving us with lots to consider.|
|To start our Tuesday, Goldsmith winner Cindy Atman outlined an informal theory of change via reflective activity that opened up a whole host of new practices for professional and personal development for engineering students and engineers.|
|On Tuesday afternoon, Joanna Wolfe provided useful and important perspectives on gender and engineering teams, providing useful techniques for developing an inclusive, collaborative style.|
Her talk lead directly to our Awards reception, where our winners received their plaques in the Pyle Center Alumni Lounge, with the beautiful Lake Mendota in the background.
|Wednesday was filled with great workshops, including Christine Nicometo’s on Teaching Oral Presentations Online, and closing with a nod to ProComm 2018 in Toronto.|
