This course utilizes some of the ideas and concepts of a relatively new movement "Data for Good" promoted by a few universities worldwide. Specifically, students will be able to work on a case project that explores employment patterns of different demographic groups during Covid-19 pandemic. The project was developed by the division of Academic Programs at SAS and fits into the Significant Learning objectives of going beyond the objectives of understanding and applying the concepts, but being able to relate SAS programming to social issues covered in other courses and encouraging to learn more. Last but not least, the course does not require students to purchase any materials or program licenses and by doing so, ensures equitable access to all course material and programs that will help students develop their programming and data analyses skills for all GT students. The course aspires to contribute to the following SDG goals: quality education, gender equality, decent work and economic growth, and reduced inequalities.
