Let's Play OpenRefine Reconciliation! [Add-On Workshop 1]
$20.00 for conference attendees | Limited to 75 participants.
Register for this workshop through the conference online registration

(Adding this workshop to your schedule on Sched does not guarantee registration.)
A "Let's Play" is a video that documents the playthrough of a video game focused on the subjective experience of the gamer, often with humorous, irreverent, or critical commentary. This "Let's Play" will walk participants through the process of using OpenRefine's LOC Reconciliation tools. Unlike a workflow guide or step-by-step documentation, this video will offer participants a real-life example of prepping data and implementing this powerful tool.

The format will be a prerecorded video followed by a detailed and interactive live Q&A with workshop participants. Attendees will receive a version of the data set ahead of the workshop in order to follow along or to play around with afterwards. A recording of the entire session, including the Q&A, will be emailed to all registered participants afterwards.

It is recommended that participants have some familiarity with OpenRefine, as this presentation will not include detailed instructions on installing the tool, setting up a project, nor basic manipulation of data.

Visual Communication for Knowledge Acquisition, Processing and Dissemination [Add-On Workshop 2]
$40.00 for conference attendees | Limited to 30 participants.
Register for this workshop through the conference online registration

Would you like to improve your understanding of visuals, improve the impact of your presentations, and better remember content?    
This four-hour workshop will engage participants in a variety of techniques to better use visuals in capturing and presenting information. Participants will investigate and learn about the power of visual communication and how it improves our processing and retention of information. Hands-on activities like how to take visual notes (sketchnoting), mindmapping, and other drawing exercises (no artistic ability is necessary - really!), will be demonstrated so participants can better remember information, share knowledge with others, and communicate ideas more engagingly.

I've become a big fan of sketchnoting or visual note taking and am interested in learning more and practicing this with others. I am also a big believer in the power of play to produce creative learning environments.
