The Data-Driven Classroom

Fellow: Nicholas Zufelt, Instructor in Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science, Tang Fellow

Focus Area: Creativity & Innovation

Project Overview

There is incredible interest and ability among our student body to use technology to create deeper connections to both their fellow classmates and other members of our community. Tang Fellow Nicholas Zufelt will work to nourish these connections between computer science and other disciplines through helping interested faculty members add computing elements to their curriculum, including tools such as data visualization and statistical modeling, simulation of social or scientific systems, discussions of ethics and technology, or developing digital learning tools specific to their classroom. This project will also include research into the pedagogy of project-based learning approaches, including both the development and assessment of interesting, real-world projects in any discipline.
