Practicum I

Practicum I offers a comprehensive introduction to data collection, data analysis and data 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.
