Humanities Core Competencies as Data Acumen: Integrating Humanities and Data Science

The development of eight new courses integrating humanities and data science through experiential learning.

We propose to expand the role of the humanities at the University of Colorado Boulder by developing a curricular initiative that combines the humanities and data science. Team members will design eight courses, each of which will promote experiential learning and foster engagement with humanistic questions in the context of quantitative inquiry. Key components of the project include, first, a two-year course design and development workshop facilitated by CU Boulder’s Center for Teaching and Learning. Second, we describe an ambitious plan for disseminating our findings and for fostering local and national conversations about best practices for teaching data science and the humanities. Our project aims to provide a model of cutting-edge pedagogical collaboration and an example of how the humanities can help equip twenty-first century learners with the intellectual resources they will need responsibly to inhabit a world being remade by data.
