NSO Preceptorials

The following are recordings for some of Preceptorials that were held on August 29, 2020.

Data Analytics & Visualization in Civic Engagement

Students like to be a part of a larger movement, and data analytics allows us to portray the student voter turnout problem as less of an individual issue and more of a challenge that a community is attempting to solve together. Through comparing relevant 4-year election cycles, organizations such as PLTV can set goals for what the turnout can be for an upcoming election and push students across campus to help in achieving this goal. Many underestimate the power of design: it is more than creating something that is visually appealing, but rather has an important role enhancing the user or viewer experience. Design, if used properly, can emphasize trends in a data set or even tell a story that can sway the intent or motive of the data used. Data visualizations have become an efficient way of conveying information and data, which we can specifically do with historical voter data, making students feel as though they are a part of a larger push to have their voices heard both in local and general elections.

Underrepresented @ SEAS: Student Panel

Participants will engage in a panel discussion focused on the freshmen experience as underrepresented students in engineering. In this interactive program, students can create connections with others of similar backgrounds, ask questions to the panelists on how they navigated the challenges of being a minority student in engineering, and learn about the resources available in SEAS and at Penn.
