In this session, Renee will answer the questions “What is data science? How can data science be applied in our industry? And do I need to go back to school to become a Data Scientist?” by detailing her own path from Data Analyst in University Advancement to Data Scientist at a Higher-Ed startup, and passing on advice that she’s collected throughout her learning journey. She’ll discuss the learning community she developed and engages with on Twitter, and how you can take advantage of social media and the vast learning resources available online to learn data science without becoming overwhelmed.
