How are data peer consultants trained?

  • All Data Peer Consultants receive training on consulting best practices, triage processes, and more (in collaboration with our partners at the D-Lab, Research IT, and UC Berkeley Library) at the beginning of each semester.
  • All Data Peer Consultants in their first semester participate in the DATA 198 Data Science Instructional Support Seminar course that runs every Fall & Spring.
  • Data Peer Consultants also receive mentorship throughout the semester from our partners' graduate consultants and staff consultants.
