The Forum is a place for discussion on teaching and learning about data science and data literacy in undergraduate courses. 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, followed by remarks by Dr. Jenna Rickus, Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning. Throughout the morning, a series of eight Purdue instructors from various disciplines 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 in the afternoon. The day will conclude with a discussion session on attendees’ interest and desired support for developing data-focused coursework in disciplinary undergraduate courses.
