Event description

Description

UC Berkeley's data science education program focuses on all undergraduates—not just those in computer science, statistics, or another STEM field. Building on the premise that data literacy is part of what it means to be an educated person in the 21st century, Berkeley faculty have developed a very popular data science course for freshmen, with no prerequisite background in mathematics, statistics, or programming. The course, which has been attracting national and international attention, is unusual also in that it has "connector" courses in numerous other disciplines, typically taken concurrently. This webinar will describe the course – how it works, whether it works, and if so why it works – and why the faculty who are teaching it can't imagine themselves ever teaching in the old way again.
