Data Science for Good

Pomona mathematics professor Jo Hardin has spent the summer collaborating with data science colleagues Hunter Glanz (Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo) and Nick Horton (Amherst) on an ambitious post-a-day-project building the Teach Data Science blog.

The blog is filled with useful resources and reflections on teaching data science, designed to ease the learning curve for faculty engaging in this interdisciplinary space.

Jo’s recent post on Data Science for Good ┬ácompiles some excellent resources for educators trying to incorporate a more critical approach to data science topics, with links to a number of groups and projects looking at the relationship between big data projects and social justice outcomes.
