Project Jupyter and Bryn Mawr College are pleased to announce JupyterDay Philly on Friday, May 19, 2017, 9am to 5pm on the campus of Bryn Mawr College, just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The theme of JupyterDay Philly is “Transformative Teaching with the Jupyter Notebook.”

JupyterDay Philly will be a day-long exploration of way to use the free and open-source Jupyter notebook to transform teaching in multiple disciplines, featuring speakers from around the United States and the world.

JupyterDay Philly is open to the public, especially members of the programming community, students, faculty, academic staff, and researchers. Developers of Jupyter notebooks used for teaching are invited to submit their notebook(s) for presentations, or video poster demonstrations. We are particularly interested in pedagogical approaches that support diversity and equity in STEM.

JupyterDay Philly is collocated with, and follows, two other related events:

Blended Learning Conference – The sixth annual Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts conference will be held Wednesday, May 17 – Thursday, May 18, 2017 at Bryn Mawr College. These conferences are a forum for faculty and staff to share resources, techniques, findings, and experiences related to blended learning.

Jupyter Notebook Workshop – The day before JupyterDay Philly will have an afternoon of tutorials on using the Jupyter Notebook for education.

JupyterDay Philly follows the Project Jupyter Code of Conduct.
