The developed educational modules will be integrated into the learning environments of project partners using the developed online repository.

Main objectives: support partners in their effort in planning, implementing and evaluating of innovative and efficient approaches in DS learning; contribute to the popularisation of the DS among widest audience piloting real cases (i.e. HEIs, companies). This includes: selection of participants, selection of suitable courses/study programs to use the repository, piloting the repository and evaluating the process.  The educational modules elaborated in WP4 (IO3) will be integrated into the learning environments of project partners using the developed platform. Main objective of this process is twofold. On one side, it will support partners in their effort in planning, implementing and evaluating of innovative and efficient approaches in data science learning, and, on the other, will contribute to the popularization of the data science among widest audience piloting real cases selected among different industries (especially non-technical ones).

The aim of piloting is to deploy and test the materials developed in WP3 in courses for different target groups and in different environments: higher educational lectures, workbooks, face‐to‐face training, simulation; to test a methodology; to gather data about the effectiveness of learning in the courses and to analyse this data and obtain indications of how to improve the content or form of deployment.

Piloting process will be based on the resources made available on the platform, and in particular:

  • – Web tour (overview of learning use case and simulation goals where applicable)
  • – Instruction guide (teaching note)
  • – Preview video (a quick overview of the platform interface)
  • – Learning materials (slide deck, tasks, simulation pre-requisite, recommendations for debrief)
  • – Simulation preview (short views on simulation from the teacher/instructor perspective)

The big advantage of a piloting is that many non-data science viewpoints can be incorporated into the process. It also represents an adaptive environment for learning and communication among two different target groups (data science experts and non-data science experts) and a central focal point around which other project activities may revolve.

WP6 will produce the following deliverables:

  • report on pilot execution
  • 3rd multiplier event
