14 weeks of teaching consisting of lectures and exercises.
– During the lectures we will introduce tools and methods for data-visualisation; as well as concepts, theories and debates.
– Individual and group exercises during the exercise sessions where the students work with the data visualisation tools and methods; and discuss and reflect upon the data design process with the concepts, theories and debates introduced in the lecture. We will work with various small cases and current examples, publicly available data sources and manually collected data.
The written hand-in exam will comprise two parts:
1) A data visualisation applying the tools and methods introduced in class;
2) A reflection paper where the students use concepts and theories introduced in class to reflect upon their choices during the data design process, discuss its implications, and relate it to larger debates.
