Dear students,

this is the forum topic for the Perceptualization course (Fall 2016). We advise that you subscribe to this topic, so that you receive an e-mail when something is posted.

Please note that in early December, class is on TUESDAY once. See the calendar and schedule for details.

Dear students,

The Perceptualization class of Tue Dec 6 was moved to 10:00-12:00h. This was necessary to accommodate the guest speaker in that day’s Creative Research lecture.

Best regards,
Maarten

This it the “Ghostfinger demo video”, about the Cyclotactor project by alumnus Staas de Jong.

Dear students,

To the homework reading assignment for next week (Mon Dec 12), a second paper was added:

[Ho, 2014] Hsin-Ni Ho, Daisuke Iwai, Yuki Yoshikawa, Junji Watanabe and Shin'ya Nishida (2014), Combining Colour and Temperature: A Blue Object is More Likely to be Judged as Warm Than a Red Object, Scientific Reports 4:5527

It was added to the reader inside the course vault. You can also download it directly from the publisher at http://www.nature.com/articles/srep05527.

All the best,
Maarten and Edwin

Dear students,

Regarding the final perceptualization project, here are some important updates:

1) we made four datasets available on the course webpage for you to choose from. See the “Project” section of the course webpage.

2) proposing your project on Monday Dec 19 is no longer compulsory, but optional, if you use any of the provided datasets.

3) however, if you want to use another dataset that we did not provide, then you must propose this to us during class on Monday Dec 19.

We hope that this is clear, and that it leaves you enough room to playfully experiment with perceptualization of data.

Kind regards,
Edwin and Maarten

FYI, class of Monday Dec 19 is a regular class, in which we will present you more Perceptualization examples, including a live demo by Edwin.

Dear students,

We have evaluated all works for the Perceptualization 2016/2017 course. Naturally, we had hoped to do this sooner, but were not able to do so.

Homework test results

The homework test questions were made very, very poorly, to our enormous surprise.

We have hypothesized several causes for the poor homework test results. Although we cannot be certain, it is our belief that students inadequately assessed the difficulty and importance of being able to process academic reading material. If this is so, then it would imply that we failed to make these aspects sufficiently clear before the homework test. As a result, we decided to drop the homework test results from the final grades calculation. During following lectures we have placed additional emphasis on how to read and process academic papers.

Final results

All results and evaluations are available inside the course vault.
