Registration Open for LACOL Online Non-credit Data Science Course

Based on a successful first run of the Data Science class last summer, the Liberal Arts Collaborative for Digital Innovation (LACOL) Faculty and Administrative Advisory Councils unanimously and enthusiastically approved the course to run again in summer 2020. Notably, the summer 2020 online course opportunity is open to Amherst College students as a not for credit option. The class will take place from June 10 – August 7. There is no charge or tuition for this summer’s course.
This fully online class is designed primarily for students with no prior coding experience who have taken or are taking a first calculus course. Interested students should not have previously taken an introductory data science course (e.g., STAT231, ASTR 200). Students should ensure that have sufficient time available during the summer to complete course assignments. For more information please see https://lacol.net/critical-ds/.
To sign up please send Nicholas Horton (nhorton@amherst.edu) an application (as a single pdf) that includes a 1) statement for why you would like to take the class, 2) a brief summary of your background and interests, 3) list of prior courses taken at Amherst, 4) a commitment to complete the coursework if you were admitted, 5) and the names of two faculty references who could speak to your ability to undertake independent work. Deadline for application is March 20 (to guarantee consideration).

Professional Norms in the Workplace

How are we ‘supposed’ to conduct ourselves at work? What’s it like to have a professional relationship with a supervisor? How can we communicate respectfully while still expressing ourselves? How might we get to know a company’s culture? How might we ask for advice at work?
During this one-hour workshop, learn about expectations, best practices and strategies for understanding expected professional behaviors and etiquette in the workplace. Every organization has its own culture, leadership, mission and identity: we’ll cover the constants, the variables and the possibilities in different environments.
*This program is part of the Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program Professional Development Series.*

5-College Program in Culture, Health and Science

Come learn more about the 5-College Program in Culture, Health and Science (CHS)! CHS is a certificate program (analogous to a minor) that allows students to explore human health, disease and healing from interdisciplinary perspectives. It links understandings of history, culture, and behavior with clinical, biological and epidemiological models of health and disease. Students design a plan of study that approaches “health” holistically from the perspective of natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. You can find out more at https://www.fivecolleges.edu/chs.
Pita Pockets will be served at 6 p.m. Stay for “COVID-19: An Interdisciplinary Roundtable on the Coronavirus” from 7-8:30 p.m. in the same place!
