People and groups across the University are developing interesting approaches to data, methods, and workflows, but don’t always get a chance to share that work across departments and units. Day of Data is that opportunity! Spend a day learning and sharing new data skills and connecting with fellow data enthusiasts.

This event is open to all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Minnesota, and is free of charge to attend. Coffee and pizza lunch will be provided.

The PACE Project will be featured at the event. Dan Soneson, Carter Griffith and Kate Paesani will lead a session at Data Jam Session 3 at 1:30 pm, The PACE Project: Managing Data of Language Learner Proficiency:

Presenting a database of 2000 students in seven language programs gathered over three years, that includes language proficiency ratings in speaking, listening, and reading, along with factors such as previous experience, study abroad, and motivation. Topics discussed include data management, statistical analysis, and research oversight.

The full schedule is available, and includes other topics of potential interest to language instructors and researchers.
