Design Thinking DC Meetup: Practice Lab - Improving Your Observational Skills

DT:DC Meetup is being hosted at Open Gov Hub. 

Jim Gilmore, author of Look - A Practical Guide for Improving Your Observational Skills, believes that How you LOOK at the world informs what you THINK of the world which informs how you ACT in the world. In other words, innovation begins with observation.

Join us for a fun night to slow down and practice your observational skills. We will start with a few quick exercises to prime our eyes and then head out for a self-led field trip to make observations and document our findings. We will regroup at the end of the evening to share our experiences and reflections.

Data Viz Meet Up

The Washington Viz-ards will host their next meetup on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 from 6 - 7:30pm. Whether you're interested in learning about data visualizations, are an expert data visualizer, or just enjoy discussing data viz, this meetup group is for you. We're looking forward to presentations from USAID Economic Analysis and Data Services and our colleagues at Development Gateway.

  • Georges Fadel and Hayley Samu from USAID Economic Analysis and Data Services (EADS) will give an overview of the program and discuss their interactive tools including: the Foreign Aid Explorer, the International Data and Economic Analysis query tool, and the Country Dashboard.
     
  • Katherine Wikrent and Danny Walker from Development Gateway will share visualizations from the Results Data Initiative. Through the project they have taken a mixed methods approach to answer one overarching question: how can we ensure that investments in results indicators actually help people work more effectively?
