The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a one-day meeting and webcast on data science postsecondary education on March 20, 2017. This meeting brought together data scientists and educators to discuss how to define and strengthen data science education in data intensive domains such as digital humanities and astronomy, and to discuss several case studies of domain-focused data science education ongoing at several universities.

 

This event is the second of an ongoing series of roundtable meetings that will take place approximately four times per year. This roundtable is organized by the Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics in conjunction with the Board on Mathematical Sciences and Their Applications, the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board, and the Board on Science Education.

 

This roundtable is sponsored by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the National Academy of Sciences W. K. Kellogg Foundation Fund, the Association for Computing Machinery, and the American Statistical Association.
