We live in a data rich society. Data is everywhere and in quantities we have never experienced. It is critically important for policy leaders, analysts, and program managers to gain an understanding of how data science can be used to positively support the decision-making processes of the public service. A knowledge and skill base in data sciences is becoming an increasing desirable for individuals in all levels of government, non-profit, and business. Whatever the objective, a strong understanding of data science enables us to forecast emerging trends, identify potential future behaviour, discover patterns, inform policy, and generate meaning from the vast amount of data that streams in and through our work environments.
This course aims to provide participants with a strong understanding of the basic concepts of data science and how to apply them to their daily work. You will gain an understanding of how to adopt a data-oriented mindset and learn to leverage industry-standard tools such as Tableau, Power BI, Python, and SQL.
