About this Event

This course helps attendees to be more confident in assessing and appraising the data and results that are presented to them. Over several case studies, we will review the relevant data and consider: have the right questions been asked; are the conclusions reliable? have we been misled either accidentally or intentionally? are the sources trustworthy; is the analysis thorough and could any bias have crept in?

The format is based on group discussion based and exercises. We’ll investigate case studies based on topical questions – we’ll use review public datasets.

This is not a “technical” course and does not require any mastery of analytics software. In the group exercises, we’ll use Excel just to look at some of our data. The instructor will also demonstrate popular and free analytics tools so that attendees can understand what is available, but this will be a very small part of the course.

These days we are all deluged with data and required to make “evidence-based” decisions. This course aims to equip people form all walks of life to be able to be more discerning and critical about data.

A basic familiarity with Excel may be helpful but not essential, simply because the data in the case studies will be provided as Excel spreadsheets. All the exercises are in groups and we will ensure that one person in each group has some Excel experience.
