Evidence and Data Collection for Problem Solving

Kim Plowright, University of Leeds

Discover how data can be used to solve problems and make decisions

As the digital world plays an increasingly large role in our daily lives, so too does the use of data.

On this course, you’ll be introduced to key data concepts as you learn how to solve simple, everyday problems using data.

You’ll discover data ethics and the restrictions that exist in using other people’s data. You’ll also learn how to present data in a meaningful way that’s easy to understand through data visualisation techniques.

To give real-world context to your learning, you’ll examine these data concepts through the case study of a small business owner.

This course is designed for people who have digital skills but would like to build confidence in using digital technology in the workplace.

This may include those studying for A-levels, those who have a degree, or those who want to improve their career prospects.

The course will also be useful for anyone in employment who wants to boost their digital skills or anyone returning to the workplace who’d like to gain confidence in how working practices have evolved.

You might also be interested in the other courses in the Digital Skills for the Workplace collection from the University of Leeds and the Institute of Coding.
