Teaching with Data 

Working with data sets and performing data analysis have become increasingly important not only in research across disciplines, but also in the workforce.

Come to this workshop for answers to the following questions:

  • Where might you begin to include the use of data in the classroom or to support student learning and research?
  • What are good analysis and visualization resources for different disciplines?
  • What are good sources of data for different disciplines?
  • What data management best practices can you instill in learners?

Be prepared to engage in conversation about how you would like to incorporate data in your teaching, and what support and resources you may need.  

We will be covering resources for Social Sciences, Humanities and Natural Sciences.

This session is being offered to Graduate Student TAs but others are welcome to attend.
