The CVC formed during the preparation of proposals for the 2012 “College’s science education” grant program sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). Six institutions (listed below)
created the CVC with the goal of providing workshops for faculty to enhance their capacity to use increasingly complex and large data sets in their research and classrooms.
Faculty from non-CVC institutions are welcome to participate as well.
Data and Computing Fundamentals is a course covering most of the techniques that will be introduced at the CVC workshop. The course is currently (Spring 2015) running for the third semester. Notes for the complete Fall 2014 semester are here.
