The Advanced Computing for Social Change (ACSC) faculty curriculum development workshop will be held July 20 – 24, just preceding PEARC20 to allow for participation in the PEARC20 program which is now a virtual conference with an agenda to be determined. XSEDE Broadening Participation and Education Programs are seeking faculty from diverse disciplines and backgrounds who would like to incorporate the ACSC approach to teaching data analytics and computational thinking into their curriculum. You will participate in a team to develop plans and materials informed by the ACSC student challenge model and mentors from the previous year’s ACSC faculty curriculum development workshop.

The agenda will include orientation, ice breaker, and presentations covering data science curriculum, ACSC framework, past challenge problems, current challenge problems, and software tools, and resources for data analysis and visualization. It is anticipated that that each day will consist of no more than two to three hours of presentations and 60 to 90 minutes of small group discussions with the balance of the time reserved for working on practice problems, developing or updating course syllabi, and curriculum plans. The goal is for you to leave the workshop with an updated course syllabus and student activities that incorporate the use of data analytics and visualization to address a social issue.
