Today, data ties together many pieces of our professional, academic, and everyday lives. This interdisciplinary approach to data science is the cornerstone of the Data Science Modules Program, a collaborative effort between the Division of Data Sciences and D-Lab, which allows faculty across campus to explore unprecedented ways to incorporate data science into their classes.

The “backbone” courses within UC Berkeley’s Data Science Education Program continue to draw unprecedented numbers of students, as the Foundations of Data Science (Data 8) and Principles and Techniques of Data Science (Data 100) reached record enrollments in Spring 2018. These courses draw students from over 70 majors on campus, welcoming anyone with or without programming experience, and giving them the tools to apply data science throughout their life.

In Fall 2017, the Data Science Discovery Program gave 50 Berkeley undergraduates the chance to deepen their learning in more than a dozen data science projects across a fabulously wide set of domains. Data science skills let students discover new knowledge and create solutions across a broad range of areas. The Data Science Discovery Program allows them to explore their interests and build their own pathways from Berkeley’s data science classes directly into hands-on research.

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.
