Spark! Civic Tech Research Design Workshop

CDS DS 290

  • Research and Information Literacy

This workshop focuses on how we learn from data. How do we identify and analyze relationships in our data? What conclusions can we draw from our data, and how applicable are our conclusions to broader contexts? How do we communicate effectively about our data and analyses? How can we be critical consumers of data and research, and identify issues and limitations in how data is used by data scientists, journalists, academics, and others? Effective Spring 2023, this course fulfills a single unit in the following BU Hub area: Research and Information Literacy. Students must register for both DS290 and DS292.
