Using Cloud Technologies to Develop Data Analysis Skills of Community College Students

A panel of four STEM professional (including a Social Scientist) will be sharing their "Experiences Using Data Analysis/Science in Education and Research". Regardless of discipline or skill level, if you are interested in strategies to better prepare students to succeed in school, work, and life in a data-intensive world then this panel presentation is for you.

This panel serves to kick-off the professional development component of a grant-funded effort on campus titled "Using Cloud Technologies to Develop the Data Analysis Skills of Community College Students", UCTDDAS (NSF-ATE Award # 2100027). This project has opportunities for faculty across the disciplines to hone their own data analysis/science skills (total beginners welcome) so that they can infuse data analysis/science into their courses or UR projects.
