West Hub Panels at the 2023 National Workshop on Data Science Education

June 22

The sixth annual National Workshop on Data Science Education will take place virtually and in person at UC Berkeley from June 20-23. UC Berkeley's Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society is leading the event with support from Microsoft and the West Hub. A diverse range of academic institutions from around the nation will be represented at the workshop, including four-year universities and community colleges. The workshop is for educators at all levels who are interested in data science education. Registration has closed for in-person attendance, but registration for virtual attendance remains open.

The West Hub organized two panels as part of this year’s workshop. Both will be held on Thursday, June 22. The first panel–Project Based Learning Case Studies–will provide an in-depth look at projects running at the University of Pittsburgh and UC San Diego (DataJam), UC Berkeley (Data Science Discovery Program), and the University of Washington (Data Science for Social Good).
The second panel–National Pipeline for Project-Based Learning–will describe our plan to leverage the strengths of these existing projects to create a connected data science learning pathway. This pathway will offer an opportunity for students to be engaged in experiential data science learning as they progress from high school to community college/undergrad to graduate school, with a goal of preparing them for a successful career built on a solid understanding of data science and data literacy.

MetroLab Summit

June 26-28
