Bookmarked for consideration of STEM pedagogical modeling and narratives-research in data visualization.
“The Smith has for a number of years encouraged volunteering as part of our collections cataloguing and research efforts particularly for those interested in a career in the cultural sector. Volunteers are provided with a basic training in all aspects of curatorial work and set tasks, projects and lecturing opportunities, if time permits.” (Continued in Collections Volunteering.)
“Melvyn Bragg discusses ‘Lives of the Artists’ – the great biographer Giorgio Vasari’s study of Renaissance painters, sculptors and architects. In 1550 a little known Italian artist, Giorgio Vasari, published a revolutionary book entitled ‘Lives of the Most Excellent Italian Painters, Sculptors, and Architects, from Cimabue to Our Times’.” (Quote from BBC Radio 4, linked above)

A well-read presentation, if the first 15 minutes are any indication.

We are offering a new kind of educational resource: a tutorial. A tutorial is like a course, except that its units are relatively independent, and it does not have a start or end date, and is available indefinitely. Anyone can enroll at any time. The units are entirely self-paced. There are no end-of-unit tests or grades.
We have moved our “Mathematics for Complex Systems” course into this tutorial format. If you were enrolled in this course, you don’t have to change anything, and you won’t see much difference, except that there is a new listing on the “Online Courses” page for tutorials.
