This unit uses team-based teaching that encompass both short (10-15 min) lectures coupled with hands-on experiences in using various data analysis software programs and tools. The tutors are actively involved in research activities to bring knowledge from real-world experiences in their respective fields. All class sessions take place in a 3 hr weekly timeslot as detailed in iLearn. Tutorials will NOT be recorded. You must attend these tutorials (preferably in person but online is available) to gain practical experience with data analysis. As some of the assessment is based on your practical use of specific software it is essential that you attend these classes.
It is expected that each student will bring to class a laptop computer to install data analysis software, or prior arrangements must be made with the convenor.
