CMC3 as an organization is committed to engaging in anti-racist
practices, and engaging in discourse to address systemic issues of racism
and exclusion in STEM education. We continue to dedicate ourselves to the
empowerment of marginalized mathematics students from Northern California
Invitation to 2021 National Workshop on Data Science Education
UC Berkeley would like to formally invite you to apply to be part of the
fourth annual National Workshop on Data Science Education. This exciting
workshop will be fully virtual from June 14 - 18, 2021, and is organized by
UC Berkeley's Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society with
support from Microsoft and the West Big Data Innovation Hub.
The vision for the conference is that on Monday will be a set of presentations
about offering an Introductory Data Science course like Data 8, including
practice labs. On Tuesday, there will be office hours from the Berkeley
professors and student staff. On Wednesday to Friday, there will be live
panels on a variety of related topics of interest to Data Science Educators.
Conference topics include:
What it is like to develop and run an introductory foundations of data science course?
Development of the affiliated connectors and modules in social, physical, and professional fields
Shared experiences of previous participants in implementing data science course
Logistics of deploying a Jupyterhub
Automatic grading solutions for Jupyterhub pedagogy materials
Integration of Human Contexts and Ethics into Data Science courses
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic the in-person2021 Spring Conference,
normally held in South Lake Tahoe, was instead a remote conference.
Why Support CMC3?
CMC3 was founded in 1972 to provide a forum through
which community college mathematics faculty in Northern and Central California
can express themselves professionally at the local, state, and national level,
as well as to support mathematical activity by students and faculty.
CMC3 works to improve the quality of mathematics
education in California and better prepare students for the future in which
they'll find themselves, one they not likely have expected.
The methods by which it does so include holding
Fall and Spring conferences,
funding scholarships through its foundation, and working with partners
to help the legislature and the Chancellor’s Office make the right
decisions on how to best serve students.
