Data Science Workshops for Undergraduate Students: Nicole Vasilevsky
There is an increasing demand for data science skills across disciplines. To address this need, members of the OHSU Library offered several hands-on, in person workshops to teach basic skills in data science to undergraduate students. In this session, I will describe successes and lessons learned from our “Data and Donuts” workshops and the OHSU Library Data Science Institute.

 LCphysX: Teaching Undergraduates Multi-Media Science Communication Skills for Public Outreach: Parvaneh Abbaspour & Jeremy McWilliams
LCphysX is a web-based platform designed with the primary purpose of teaching undergraduate physics majors multi-media science communication skills. The prevalence of the internet has exacerbated the need to train future scientists to communicate with a popular audience using digital media. Developed through a partnership between the Library Digital Initiatives Team and Physics Department at Lewis and Clark College, LCphysX features short, student-produced videos which present projects and experiments from upper-level lab courses in language accessible to a general public.
