Social Data Analytics

Block 2: Social Data Analytics

Throughout this week students will meet daily ‘learning objectives’ for analysing social data, which will sum together by the end of the week to form a strong transferable skillset. Students will join us on Monday with little or no knowledge of R and social data analysis and by Friday will have completed a group project using new skills in: R coding, handling data in R, data visualisation, and statistical comparisons of group means.

Sessions will run from 9:30am to 5:00pm at the Exeter Q-Step Centre.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
