Graduate Student Data Science Pedagogy Workshop

April 4, 2018

In this one-day workshop, graduate students will learn about the pedagogy of the Data Science Education Program. This workshop will cover some of the computational and statistical concepts that students learn in the Foundations of Data Science class (Data 8) and Principles and Techniques of Data Science (Data 100), as well as an overview of the Connector courses and Modules. It will also give experience using a cloud based computing environment. Graduate students can use these skills to improve teaching, to imagine new types of teaching, and learn what resources are available.

Data Science Pedagogy and Practice Workshop

A short workshop for instructors at UC Berkeley  - June 3-5, 2019


Learn pedagogical methods and technical tools for data science, and get help integrating them into your 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.

Human Contexts and Ethics (HCE) Workshop

April 4, 2018

Berkeley’s undergraduate Data Science programs include a requirement for students to learn about the human, social, and ethical contexts in which data analytics and computational inference play a central role.

Human Contexts and Ethics (HCE) classes can be taught by instructors in different areas:

  • Instructors who address contextual and ethical issues directly in the many domain areas where data science is put to work
