Practicum Utrecht Data School offers a comprehensive introduction to data collection, data analysis and visualization. In a ten-week course (level 3), students experience the process of going from (big) data to knowledge. Through practical tutorials, students learn to work with various programs such as Excel, R, Tableau and Gephi. In addition, the course places the new methods in a cultural-analytical perspective of a history of knowledge technologies and their epistemological impact. In small teams, students carry out assignments and write a research proposal.
The Utrecht Data School Practicum takes place twice during the academic year (block 1 and 3).
