The workshop will provide an orientation to what are the social justice implicaitions of data science learning and practice, how bringing issues of social justice to the forefront of data science can support diverse student learning, and share examples and techniques that instructors with no prior experience in teaching about social and human contexts of data science can use to start incorporating these into their classrooms.
The workshop will address the following topics:
Teaching towards social justice with the Human Contexts and Ethics Toolkit
Teaching about race in the data science classroom
Reviewing a syllabus for opportunities to engage social justice and ethics lessons
Using the data science lifecycle as a pedagogical tool for incorporating human contexts and ethics lessons alongside technical learning
Reviewing classroom dynamics for inclusive pedagogy
Designing effective discussion sections as a space for HCE learning
The workshop is open to attendees of the National Pedagogy Workshop. Attendance will be limited to 50 people to facilitate more interaction among participants and instructors. To register, please fill out this Registration Form.
