The Clinic conducts various skills-focused and topical seminars on the Tufts main campus.
Data Analysis, Organization, and Presentation
University of Massachusetts, Mount Ida Campus, January 2020 | Liz Stanton, PhD
Clinic Director and Senior Economist, Liz Stanton, PhD, will be teaching a two-week course designed to provide training for advanced undergraduates as a part of the Sheridan Visiting Lectureship program. The course aims to develop professional quality data analysis and presentation skills. The skills covered in each module will be applied to the ongoing group and individual projects. The course will include four skill-development modules: (1) Transferability, creating analysis that stands on its own and therefore can be understood without guidance from its author; (2) Auditability, producing analysis with the goal of ease of review and quality assurance; (3) Credibility, techniques for enhancing the authority of analysis; and (4) Relatability, telling a story with data and analysis that is accessible to a general audience. Course syllabus forthcoming.
