IMPACT Data Science Education Forum
The IMPACT Data Science Education Forum is an event for faculty, staff, and students interested in teaching and learning for undergraduates about using data.
The morning will kick off with a keynote by Dr. Mark Ward, professor of statistics and interim co-director for the Integrated Data Science Initiative. Next, a series of eight Purdue instructors will share examples of data science or data literacy undergraduate student projects they created as participants in the IMPACT Data Science Education project in spring 2020. A lightning round panel will introduce campus resources that support teaching and learning about data. The day will conclude with a discussion session on attendees’ interest and desired support for developing data-focused coursework in disciplinary undergraduate courses.
The IMPACT Data Science Education Forum is hosted by Purdue Libraries and School of Information Studies, Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation, and the Data Science Consulting Service (DSCS) and funded by the Integrative Data Science Initiative.
There is no cost for attending the Forum. You may attend any of the sessions throughout the day.
