Data Are Everywhere—and Now, So Is Data Science Education. Learn How This Affects You!

Hear from four projects grappling with what it means to engage learners in data science, both integrated into STEM subjects and stand-alone, and discuss the potential challenges.

Date/Time: 
Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 10:45am to 12:15pm

This interactive session helps all participants view their work in an important new light. Through a combination of presentation and active discussion, participants investigate several ways that data science education (DSE) can be integrated into STEM learning, and work together to answer driving questions about how DSE looks and feels in practice. Specifically, presenters (1) increase awareness of the importance of DSE, (2) help participants understand how DSE intersects with their work, and (3) expand views on data use in STEM learning to involve DSE contexts.
