This year we will be exploring how "data acumen" fits into biology. Data acumen is defined as "the ability to make good judgments, use tools responsibly and effectively, and ultimately make good decisions using data." This idea fits nicely with several aspects of biology education including engaging with real world problems and developing quantitative skills. More information coming soon!
For more on data acumen, see the National Academies report Data Science for Undergraduates: Opportunities and Options.
