Exploring the Integration of Data-intensive Analytical Skills in Public Affairs Education
While much is being said and written about big data and data science, much less attention has been given to the skills required of the current and next generation of public managers, policy analysts, and informed citizens who are expected to use new data resources and tools effectively. To begin to address this gap, on May 9, 2014, CTG hosted a one-day National Science Foundation (NSF) workshop to explore the integration of data-intensive analytical skills in public affairs education. This report highlights the opportunities, challenges, and next steps that emerged from the day.
