Data Science Education Centre of Excellence

Our Work

Details of current and future collaborative projects the Data Science Education Centre of Excellence is leading on

The Centre will act as a focal point, bringing experts in student administration management together to work on the step change processes to deliver ambitious data science training initiatives.  In doing so it will avoid duplication of effort and work with academic subject experts to support robust curriculum delivery to meet and go beyond the current Data Driven Innovation (DDI) Programme key performance indicators, growing student numbers and increasing associated fee income. It will work to ensure the content created benefits the University's five DDI Hubs and wider University ensuring activities and initiatives are linked to realise the benefits of a growing portfolio.   

Immediate priorities will include: 

  1. Landscape mapping of existing courses, programmes, training, and outreach activity along with current methods of delivery; creating and maintaining a portfolio matrix of activity.  

  1. Working with colleagues across the University to develop processes to streamline the creation of course and programme delivery related to committee structures and system developments, enabling training and curriculum development to be developed and delivered at pace and scale.  

 

Further details of these activities and their outputs will be shared on the Data Science Education Centre of Excellence website as the work develops.
