Abstract

This paper describes an interdisciplinary data visualization course established in part through a National Science Foundation (NSF) course/curriculum/laboratory improvement (CCLI) grant. The course and accompanying lab are intended for upper-division biomedical, civil, computer, electrical, and mechanical engineering students, as well as chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and physics majors at The University of Memphis. A service learning component of the course introduces undergraduates to civic engagement through work with high-school teachers. Undergraduates participate on interdisciplinary teams to implement and subsequently extend and maintain a repository of contextually-relevant visualization applications which support inquiry-based learning opportunities for high-school students. In addition, as part of the course, students develop visualization applications that have utility in research projects.
