A Data Visualization Activity is a hands-on engagement with data visualization with the goal of learning, reflecting, discussing, or designing visualizations. Today, numerous data visualization activities are available to teach data visualization knowledge in a variety of contexts​. Selecting one or more vis activity in comprehensive courses, however, remains a challenge. To support this process, we propose a didactic vis framework in which complex DataVis activities are broken down into multiple learning activities with different learning goals.​ A learning activity template, a learning activity matrix, and a didactic structure chart assist in planning, analyzing and adapting InfoVis courses.
