DataUp enables researchers and educators to understand and address how to prepare institutions to teach data science students while preparing students for future data-intensive and data-enabled environments. The program contains three stages: A 2-day data science training workshop held at the DataUp recipient institution. Selected institutions will be able to choose among the 15 different workshops (in English and Spanish) offered by The Carpentries to host at their home institution. Target audiences are 15-30 learners with little to no prior computational experience. Workshops must take place in Fall 2021 - Spring 2022. Attend a 2-day virtual instructor training event in Summer 2022. The instructor training is taught by peer, volunteer Carpentries instructors trained in pedagogy. The interactive workshop will introduce key research findings and teaching practices adopted by the Carpentries community to help learners engage in data science better and faster. Participating institutions are also required to teach a data science course, workshop, or boot camp in year 2 (2022-2023) to expand the impact of data science at their institution and to their students.
