1. Course description.
During the “Applied Data Science with R” open-to-public online training course you will learn how to apply the R programming language to carry out essential data management, wrangling and processing activities.
This course will introduce you to all basic concepts of data processing and analysis in R environment. More specifically, you will learn to understand different types of data and common data structures available in R language, prepare, transform and manage datasets and their variables, export/import data from various file formats (Excel spreadsheets, csv, tab, txt etc.), create simple graphical representations of the data (bar plots, histograms, box plots etc.), obtain summaries, data aggregations, cross-tabulations, frequency and pivot tables, and run and explain results of basic statistical tests e.g. correlations, t-tests etc. The course will also provide an introduction to modelling using multiple linear regression methods and will introduce you to data visualisation techniques available in R for data reporting and research communication.
The course will cover modern approaches in applied data science using R language and its rich ecosystem of external libraries including tidyverse family of packages e.g. dplyr, ggplot2, tidyr, readr, tibble and other essential R libraries for data wrangling and statistics.
2. Course programme.
This instructor-led course duration is planned over 6 teaching weeks (to qualify for the Course Attendance Certificate) plus an additional 1 calendar month for the completion of the data science project (to obtain the graded Course Completion Certificate).
In between the six weekly online live tutorials (2.5 hours long each) you will improve your skills working through set tasks and homework exercises which will require 4-6 hours of your time commitment per week (24-36 hours). We estimate that the total time commitment for the Course Attendance Certificate is 40-50 hours over 6 teaching weeks, and for the Course Completion Certificate it will equate to 70-80 hours (over 2.5-month period) including the project report writing time.
Start date: Monday, 26th of October 2020 @14:30 London (UK) time
Week 1: First step with R language
Week 2: Data wrangling with R
Week 3: Exploratory data analysis with R
Week 4: Inferential statistics and hypothesis testing with R - Part 1
Week 5: Inferential statistics and hypothesis testing with R - Part 2
Week 6: Linear and non-linear models with R
Additionally, in order to receive the full Course Completion Certificate, you will have to submit a short data analysis report (up to 2,000 words) along with R data processing and analysis scripts within one calendar month from the last day of Week 6. The project will be assessed and graded. You will also receive a formal written feedback about your project.
