Call For Example Courses
ACM Data Science Task Force
Why example courses
Including example courses and curricula as part of an ACM-sponsored curriculum effort is not new. It was introduced and implemented first as part of the ACM/IEEE-CS CS2013 guidelines. Real example courses and curricula (rather than stylized model courses) can be of great value to those (re-)designing courses of their own, and so we have adopted this practice for data science.
To give a full sense of the diverse ways to teach the material in the Body of Knowledge (BoK), we anticipate we will accept at least a few dozen example courses. For each core (tier 1) competency in the BoK, we expect to have a few examples of courses that implement it.
How to submit an example course for review
We have created a MS Word template to facilitate collecting the desired information. Filling out the template should take 30-60 minutes. Please map your example course against the Draft 2 ACM-DSTF guidelines.
Please send example course submissions (completed template files) via email to email@example.com.
