The course will be taught as a lecture accompanied by practicals in small groups (VUE). There will be 8 on-campus lectures with 120 participants. Concerning the practicals, there will be 7 on-campus sessions, starting with the first week (the day of the first main lecture) where students will use their own computers. The main focus of the practical sessions will be to cover the relevant R material and gain computational skills. Additionally, in order to support students for R programming, regular tutorials will be offered by the tutors.
Students are expected to be active in the class. We also encourage the use of Forum at Learn.
