The Workshop on Data for Good in Education will be a professional development opportunity for all instructors seeking to more deeply engage their students through meaningful social good projects within a classroom setting. It will inspire, educate, and most importantly, allow faculty the chance to share, and prepare, materials for use within their own teaching context.
An important component of increasing persistence and success for our current generation of students is connecting their coursework to meaningful change or outcomes. The Workshop on Data for Good in Education will support faculty in developing their teaching to better incorporate the Data for Social Good (DSG) movement. This provides a natural connection to relevance with grassroots-level improvements in our society while promoting the broad applicability of data science.
