課程概述

This introductory course will prepare non-CS undergraduate students to analyze digital data and create effective visualizations. Students will learn analytic and visualization techniques drawn from various areas, including information design, visual art, and cognitive principles. This course consists of five mini-modules.
- Concepts around digital data lifecycle
- Data analysis basics
- Visualization basics and storytelling with data
- Data labs: Python
- Thematic data analysis & viz labs

These mini-modules are designed to guide students through the key steps in an execution of a data storytelling project, which involves identify needs, collect, cleanse, process, analyze, visualize, and communicate with digital data.
The course is comprised of hand-on activities, assigned readings, assignments, final project, and class activities. Students will be expected to work with various software applications and Python throughout the semester.
 

課程目標
At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to
- Engage in academic and technical discussions on concepts and techniques related to digital data
- Describe different natures of data (e.g., types, format, disciplines) and their corresponding analysis solutions
- Apply major technologies of data visualization in different themes and data format
- Execute a data storytelling project which involves collect, cleanse, process, analyze, visualize, and communicate digital data.

Term project: Digital storytelling 
30% 
The term project is designed for students to integrate and extend knowledge acquired throughout the course and to apply that knowledge to present a digital story with collected data. Students are required to work in groups of 1-2 people (TBD). Experience suggests that successful teams require expertise in data selection, design, implementation, and project management. Rubric break-down in this part (40 points): Write-ups: - Data source selection, gathering and cleansing process (8 points) - Data analysis process (8 points) - Data visualization (8 points) Presentation: - Storytelling in the oral presentation (16 points)
