Project Description 

This project will address the growing demand for informal data science training from students, faculty, postdocs, and staff across disciplines at Pitt and build a sustained learning community. The demand for informal training offered by SCI and the libraries has outpaced capacity. To address this demand, this project will scale up informal data science training through guided and self guided instruction with student workers. To complement informal instruction, the project will create a diverse and inclusive data science learning community that supports learners during and after workshops, hosts events, and maintains a space for further informal learning and collaboration.
