IMPACT Data Science Education

Preparing undergraduates to Lead into the Future

The IMPACT Data Science Education project aims to create a sustainable and scalable course development process for integrating data science into undergraduate courses. The project builds on successful Purdue programs, such as IMPACT (Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation) and the Data Science Consulting Service.

The project will accept six faculty members who will participate in the IMPACT program and additional activities during spring 2020 to design innovative and engaging data science coursework to enable their students to use data science methods and techniques in their fields.

IMPACT Data Science Education, as one of the projects of Purdue University’s Integrative Data Science Initiative (IDIS), will contribute to the current data science education ecosystem at Purdue by helping faculty integrate data science into undergraduate courses. The project team consists of faculty, staff and a student with expertise in data science, pedagogy, and instructional design.
