Data in Social Context workshop
August 20, 2019
The Data in Social Context (DiSC) workshop prepares Graduate Teaching Assistants at Virginia Tech to teach courses that emphasize an interdisciplinary approach of data analytics, computational skills, and critical thinking in the humanities and social sciences. This workshop addresses a key feature of the contemporary world: we live our lives increasingly as data, yet often we lack the integrated analytical skills necessary to understand the full implications of how connected and quantified our lives have become. The workshop will feature presentations by three VT graduate students who participated in earlier workshop sessions and a faculty member affiliated with the Data & Decisions Destination Area.
The deadline for applying to attend the workshop is August 15, 2019. Applicants must be submitted using form. Space is limited.
Priority will be assigned to GTA's who are scheduled to teach courses in the Data & Decisions curriculum (see list of courses on the survey). Participants invited to attend will be notified by email by August 16, 2019. Questions about the workshop may be directed to co-directors, Tom Ewing and Roan Parrish.
