D&S is seeking an instructor to develop and teach the course, Introduction to Data Studies, a required course for a new program, Minor in Data Studies for Social Good. The course will be offered as a 1.5 credit module beginning in the Spring of 2021. The purpose of the course is to give students 1) an overview of the concept of “data” and modern applications in the 21st century, 2) explore the nature of the concept of the “social good” in the 21st century, and 3) introduce students to interdisciplinary nature of the minor so that they will be able to make connections across their course work.
As a 1.5 credit course, Introduction to Data Studies will require approximately 21 hours of instruction time with the possibility of the course being offered twice during the semester if necessary.
