Update 1

The Advanced Computing for Social Change (ACSC) faculty curriculum development workshop will be held virtually June 17-18, 2021, 11am – 5pm Eastern each day. XSEDE Broadening Participation and Education Programs are seeking faculty from diverse disciplines and backgrounds who would like to incorporate the ACSC approach to teaching data analytics and computational thinking into their curriculum or are interested in using these tools in their research. This 2-day workshop provides materials informed by the ACSC student challenge to help introduce software tools, such as R, and classroom resources for data analysis, visualization, and computational modeling. The workshop will include some hands-on training, but no special equipment or software is required. The goal is for attendees to leave the workshop with new curriculum materials and tools that will help to incorporate the use of data science tools to address social issues into their courses.
