Data Science for All: A University-Wide Course in Data Analytics

Incorporating data literacy into a curriculum is an opportunity for higher education to make an impact on students as they prepare to enter the workforce. This presentation describes the design and structure of “Data Science,” a new, unique undergraduate elective course in Temple University’s General Education curriculum.

In this 45-minute webinar, you’ll hear how the course:

  • Encourages students to adopt an “evidence-based” mindset
  • Gives students the skills to identify and use data relevant to their field of study and the world around them
  • Uses Tableau to introduce analytics and data literacy to a broad, non-technical audience
The webinar will highlight several aspects of Tableau that make it a useful tool for teaching undergraduate students the power of data. David Schuff will demonstrate several hands-on exercises used in the course using publicly available data to create visualizations, interactive dashboards, and simple analytics.
