Evolution of Data in the Classroom: From Data to Data Science
Event Date(s): Sunday, July 14, 2019 (All day) to Friday, July 19, 2019 (All day)
Data science is an emerging field that is developing practices to manage the burgeoning access to data and powerful analytic tools. Importantly, data science has been identified as a way to reach a more diverse set of students by addressing socially relevant problems, while acknowledging the ethical and social impacts of scientific work. In this workshop participants will explore how to build on the ways data is currently used in classrooms to introduce students to appropriate data science practices.
The summer workshop is appropriate for 2-year and 4-year faculty teaching all levels of undergraduate biology, quantitative biology, and life science-oriented mathematics, and future faculty. We also welcome high school teachers teaching AP or advanced biology. We encourage teams from a single institution pr partner institutions to apply, especially interdisciplinary teams and teams combining part time and full time faculty.
We are pleased to announce that the NSF sponsored QUBES project is providing participant support funds to defray the cost of participation this year. For further information visit the QUBES website.
