Data Science Pedagogy and Practice

June 4, 2018, 9:00am
Learn data science concepts, pedagogical methods, and technical tools, and get help integrating them into your own practice. This workshop covers some of the computational and statistical concepts that students learn in the Foundations of Data Science class (Data 8) through hands-on analysis of real-world data. It will support instructors from all disciplines in exploring how to teach courses that can connect with and enrich this approach.

Algorithmic Bias in Search and Research

May 8, 2018
As part of the Designing for Digital Literacy Series co-presented by the AIS, the Library, and the College Writing Program, a group of instructors, staff and librarians gathered on April 18, 2018 to discuss the implications of algorithmic bias for student research and learning. Librarian Cody Hennesy kicked off the conversation by outlining Safiya Noble’s research on how popular platforms such as Google and Facebook engage in technological redlining. This kind of work provides opportunities to help students connect discussions about scholarly resources with issues of bias and point of view in the broader information landscape.

Data Science Pedagogy Course for Graduate Students

June 8, 2018, 9:00am
In this new one-day workshop, graduate students will learn about the pedagogy of the Data Science Education Program, where UC Berkeley is leading in curricular innovation in this exciting area. Graduate students can use these skills to improve teaching, to imagine new types of teaching, and learn what resources are available. No previous programming or statistics experience needed.
