The Data Science Initiative is organizing a symposium on Data Science in Teaching. Data science skills become more and more important in all BOKU disciplines. Therefore, we want to exchange experiences with existing courses and ideas for new approaches. We invite researchers and lecturers from all Departments to join us for discussions on how to better prepare our students.
