Arkansas Data Analytics Teacher Alliance (AR-DATA) Program

June 14 - July 23

Arkansas Data Analytics Teacher Alliance (AR-DATA) for 9-12th Grade Teachers

The University of Arkansas College of Engineering has received funding on a 3-year grant from the National Science Foundation. This new grant focuses directly on providing mathematics, computer science, and pre-engineering teachers with transformative research experiences thematically centered on data analytics, especially engineering applications towards smart and connected health, infrastructure, and community.

Teachers who choose to participate in the AR-DATA program will develop, implement, and disseminate analytics learning modules suitable for high school curriculum. Specifically, AR-DATA participants will develop and promote modules to enhance current curriculum, guided by curriculum coaches and research mentors, to train the next-generation STEM workforce, reflecting state-of-the-art research on data analytics with applications in various engineering disciplines. AR-DATA participants will attain new knowledge of data analytics and engineering applications, gain a better understanding of the next-generation STEM workforce needs in data analytics, and learn innovative pedagogies and effective strategies from peers, mentors, and curriculum coaches.
