From the SFU City Program:
We’re very pleased to announce a new offering of Community Data Science: Theory and Practice – the first immersive professional development program of its kind in Canada.
Making data-driven land-use, infrastructure, and policy decisions requires that planners, engineers, local policy-makers and managers understand various options, design choices, and trade-offs between them.
Our foundational, part-time Theory and Practice course leaps headfirst into public datasets, with exploring the most critical analytical tools, visualization approaches, and best practices in disseminating insights.
This course takes place over four days at the SFU Harbour Centre Campus:
• Fri Nov 9, 9am to 5pm
• Sat Nov 10, 9am to 5pm
• Fri Nov 23, 9am to 5pm
• Sat Nov 24, 9am to 5pm
Instructors: Craig Jones, PhD candidate, Department of Geography, University of British Columbia; Andy Yan, Director, SFU City Program
