Taking It on the Road

Two of my fabulous UVU students – David Anderson and Tanner Nackos – who attended the A2 Data Dive with me back in November of 2013, have been giving presentations about the Utah Data Dive (as well as the UVU Data Lab) at several conferences.

  • Nackos, Tanner D., Anderson, David J., Nuesmeyer, Kristen C., & Poulson, Barton (2014, April). Data Dives as Engaged Research and Learning: A Retrospective and Prospective Report. Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Rocky Mountain Psychology Association, Salt Lake City, UT.
  • Nackos, Tanner D., Anderson, David J., & Poulson, Barton (2014, March). The UVU Data Lab and the Utah Data Dive: Applied data science for the social sciences. Paper presented at the annual Scholarship of Teaching and Engagement (SoTE) Conference at Utah Valley University, Orem, UT.
  • Anderson, David J., Nackos, Tanner D., & Poulson, Barton (2014, February). Bringing data science to the social sciences: The UVU Data Lab. Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Utah Conference on Undergraduate Research, Provo, UT.

(By the way, Kristen Nuesmeyer, who is listed on the top reference, is one of the academic advisors for our department and an enthusiastic supporter of the project, as well.)


Funding Received!

Woo hoo! I just found out that we received a grant to put together the spring 2015 edition of the Utah Data Dive! Many, many thanks to Office of Engaged Learning at Utah Valley University, which awarded Russell Warne and me a Grant for Engaged Learning for the project. Now we’ll have lots of free food and swag for anyone who shows up to help! (If you’re interested, you can see the text of the grant application here.)
