Practicum I & II

Practicum I

Practicum I offers a comprehensive introduction to data collection, data analysis and visualization. In a course (level 3) of ten weeks students experience the data research process, from (big) data to knowledge. Additionally, the course incorporates new methods in a cultural-analytical perspective on the history of knowledge technologies and their epistemological impact. In small teams, the students get to know the external partners (companies, governments and NGOs) and their research interests on which they will write a research proposal.

Practicum II

In Practicum II, students work together with external partners in the implementation of the research projects. Under the guidance of experienced scientists from UDS, students actively adapt their knowledge of data collection, analysis and visualization and the formulation of a comprehensive analysis of their findings into a professional report for external partners. On the last day of the course, students present their work at a symposium for partners and other interested parties.
