Instructors at UC Berkeley are invited to a free June workshop where they can learn pedagogical methods and technical tools for data science, and get help integrating them into their own teaching. This workshop will cover how students in the Foundations of Data Science class (Data 8) have been introduced to computational and statistical concepts through hands-on analysis of real-world data, and it will support instructors from all disciplines in exploring how to teach courses that can connect with and enrich this approach.

The Data Science Education Program offers an interdisciplinary curriculum that provides a foundation for Berkeley undergraduates of all majors to engage capably and critically with data.  The Foundations of Data Science class already serves over 1,000 students per year across about 60 majors and fulfills statistics requirements in 90% of the majors that have one.
