Data Science Pedagogy and Practice: A Short Summer Workshop

Workshop | June 3 – 5, 2019 every day | 8 a.m.-6 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, Academic Innovation Studio, 117 Dwinelle Hall

 Data Sciences

Learn data science concepts, pedagogical methods, and technical tools, and get help integrating them into your own practice. This workshop (June 3-5, with 1-on-1 curriculum building meetings on June 6) will cover some of the computational and statistical concepts that students learn in the Foundations of Data Science class (Data 8) through hands-on analysis of real-world data.

Simons Institute Workshop — Wrong at the Root: Racial Bias and the Tension Between Numbers and Words in Non-Internet Data

Workshop | June 5 – 7, 2019 every day | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing)

 Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing

Artificially intelligent systems extrapolate from historical training data. While the training process is robust to “noisy” data, systematically biased data will inexorably lead to biased systems. The emerging field of algorithmic fairness seeks interventions to blunt the downstream effects of data bias. Initial work has focused on classification and prediction algorithms.

Catalytic Enantioselective Redox-Neutral Processes for Efficient Chemical Synthesis

Seminar | June 5 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall

 Prof. Yu Zhao, National University of Singapore

 College of Chemistry

The development of economical and selective catalytic methods are vital to sustainable chemical synthesis. My group at National University of Singapore focuses on the identification of catalytic enantioselective redox-neutral transformations to access valuable chiral building blocks in organic synthesis. Such methods have the significant advantage of circumventing the redundant...   More >

Caregiver Challenges: Memory Loss and Resistance (BEUHS142)

Workshop | June 5 | 12:10-1:30 p.m. | Tang Center, University Health Services, Class of '42

 Maureen Kelly, ED.D., LCSW, Elder Care Program, Be Well @ Work

 Be Well at Work - Elder Care Program

This workshop will focus on specific challenges related to caring for an older adult, including caring for an elder with memory loss and caring for an elder who resists help. Strategies for self-care will be shared. Resources provided.
