Roundtable on Data Science Post-Secondary Education
Statement of Task
A roundtable focusing on data science education and practice is proposed to bring together representatives from data science training programs, funding agencies, professional societies, foundations, and industry to discuss the community’s needs, best practices, and ways to move forward. The roundtable will help affected communities develop a coherent and shared view of the emerging field of data science and of how best to prepare large numbers of professionals who can help realize the potential of this field.
The roundtable convenes four meetings per year. Each roundtable meeting focuses on a topic relating to data science education or practice and consist of presentations from experts in that topic followed by open discussions of the roundtable. All meetings are open to the public and advertised to the broader data science community. Meetings will be webcast live with the capability for remote participation, and videos and slides from each meeting will be posted online. Meeting highlights are be produced following each meeting to summarize the presentations and discussions during that meeting.
