COM 495: Turning Data into Insight and Stories

Undergraduate course, Purdue University, 2020

I developed a course designed to teach both the technical skills to explore and extract insight from data and the communication skills to visualize, present, and discuss data insights. The course focused most on learning R, and particularly creating compelling visualizations in R, rather than statistical procedures. The syllabus is available here. For the visualization aspects, I drew heavily on Andrew Heiss’s course on Data Visualization in R.
