Welcome to the Data Science+ Group Page

Based on conversations at the 2018 LACOL Summer Workshop, an active working group has emerged for Data Science, with a special interest in intersections with Environmental Studies as a data-intensive discipline.

Group Resource Page: Shared by/for Group Members  (submit resources here.)

Areas of collaboration:

  • A webinar series (see below) and study group on data science in the liberal arts.
  • Identifying key data science skills and information falling between curricular cracks at LACOL schools and provide existing resources to begin addressing them.
  • Developing a repository to share software tutorials, commentary, wrappers, assignments, etc., that help teach students to use important tools.
  • Developing a consortium-wide “Intro to Critical Data Collection and Analysis” course.
  • Exploring options for managing research data collections from sensors or data generated collaboratively with other researchers; design requirements or existing database solutions for data sharing, and analysis.
