Neglected (Yet Foundational) Concepts in the Pedagogy of Data Visualization

Column by Computer Science and Engineering Professor Enrico Bertini.

The end of another semester is approaching fast and this year marks my 7th year in a row teaching visualization to computer science and engineering students at NYU. Over time I have been experimenting a lot with my pedagogical approach to teaching visualization and I am now at a stage where students go through many more (carefully crafted) visualization design problems than they used to.
