Joining the Data Revolution: Big Data in Education and Social Science Research


June 6-17, 2022


Applications are open for the Institute for Research on Innovation and Science's summer introductory-level workshop for researchers in education and social science fields (ESS) interested in gaining experience working with large-scale restricted data. The goal of the workshop is to increase the ability of participants to define and develop projects that will result in competitive proposals that might be submitted to NSF or other funders. A secondary goal is to support a community of researchers who can share information, tools, and insights to help strengthen research and teaching capabilities involving large scale data analysis in ESS fields. The virtual workshop will run from June 6-17. Application and a full description are available here. Please contact IRIS Managing Director Nancy Calvin-Naylor at nbirk@umich.edu with any questions.
