Instructors interested in learning how to incorporate data science into their courses are invited to come to the Teaching and Research Resource Fair at the Academic Innovation Studio on Tuesday, April 18. The event is open to all faculty, researchers, and graduate students, and is designed to connect instructors with campus resources to improve or refresh their teaching and research.
