ABSTRACT
The past 10 years have seen profound changes in visualization algorithms, techniques, methodologies, and applications. These changes are forcing alterations to visualization courses. Unfortunately, outdated course content recommendations, together with profound changes in the underlying technology and methodology, are producing an unstable ground for educators at a time when visual representations are becoming increasingly important. To address this issue, educators held meetings or workshops at Siggraph 2011 and 2012 and a panel and workshop at Eurographics 2012. This article presents the insights gathered at these events.
