Malte Ziewitz is part of a team — with Engaged Faculty Fellows Sarah Sachs and Stephen Hilgartner — that is developing, teaching and evaluating a new community-engaged undergraduate course called the Data Science & Society Lab. Funded by the Data Science Curriculum Initiative, the course brings together students from different majors to explore social and ethical problems in data science through a mix of interactive lectures and hands-on projects.
Examples of project challenges may be a systematic analysis of a recent ethical controversy for an NGO or local charity, a proposal for best practices for the problem of consent in large-scale data sets or a public resource for citizens who feel discriminated against by a data science application.
