This summer the MSU Museum is participating in a summer institute along with the MSU Library, and Abrams Planetarium. Selected faculty and graduate students are exploring data visualization on three large-scale digital learning technology platforms at Michigan State University:
- The Abrams Planetarium
- 360 Degree Panoramic Room In the Library’s Digital Scholarship Lab
- Science on a Sphere (coming to the MSU Museum in Fall 2019)
Participants will learn how each of these platforms are best suited for different types of storytelling and data representations. Collaborators will work towards innovative and interdisciplinary ideas using one or more of the platforms, and develop course modules that can engage students in unique forms of active learning in immersive digital arenas.
At the completion of the program students will present on topics they focused on during the summer institute.
