University of North Dakota Faculty/Staff Newsletter

ICPSR webinar will focus on integrating data analysis into the community college curriculum

Faculty are welcome to a ICPSR webinar on integrating data analysis into the community college curriculum from noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19, in the Chester Fritz Library, room 108.

This community college perspective may have some tips for university curriculum use of ICPSR data as well. Join Kathy Rowell, professor of Sociology at Sinclair Community College, for a discussion of "lessons learned" about integrating data analysis into the community college curriculum. Kathy has been instrumental in the Integrating Data Analysis (IDA) initiative of the American Sociological Association and the Social Science Data Analysis Network since its inception in the early 1990s. She will share her favorite resources and sample activities, tips from her own classroom, and briefly address the challenges faced by community college faculty when bringing data into the classroom.
