The National Science Foundation’s Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) invites you to participate in a town hall meeting to stimulate a national conversation on the topic of Data Science in Education. Each day, there is more accessible data than there was the day before, and a professional skillset is emerging to meet the needs of a dynamically growing industry. This town hall meeting will explore Data Science and its impact across all levels of education from K-12 through higher education, including community colleges, minority serving institutions, and graduate institutions.
With speakers and open discussions, we will explore:
- Data Science research across disciplines and fields
- Ethical practices and approaches to Data Science
- Teaching and Learning Data Science
- Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in a ‘Data Science for All’ movement
The outcomes of this meeting will include a white paper that will capture the themes from these topics which can be used to inform future work in the field.
