Now in its second year, Introduction to Data Science is a fully-online summer class co-taught by a multi-campus LACOL team. The class is designed as a collaborative, socially relevant, discussion-oriented online classroom experience in the style of liberal arts colleges.
Student demand and demonstrable learning gains through the online summer class propel this LACOL experiment and project forward. A driving question for the team remains: how can liberal arts learning best be achieved online? Tune into this panel discussion to hear directly from the data science faculty on their course design and the lessons learned – many insights proving useful when times demand flexible course delivery.
