https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/data-to-insight

This eight week course is a hands-on introduction to statistical data analysis that emphasises fundamental concepts and practical skills. Organisations around the world are collecting more data than ever. They are talking about big data, data science, business intelligence, analytics, data mining and data visualisation, and there’s an urgent need for people with the data skills to understand, interpret and communicate this information. Data to Insight: An introduction to data analysis provides an introduction to statistical data analysis for those new to the subject as well as those wanting a reminder and a fresh perspective. The goal of the course is to help learners think like statistician, teaching what to look for in statistical data, however large the sample may be, as well as the limitations of data and what you can do to avoid being misled.

Academic Integrity: Values, Skills, Action
Start date: 10 November
Lead Educator: Dr Jason M. Stephens, Senior Lecturer at the University of Auckland. His research focuses on academic motivation and moral development, particularly as it relates to cheating behaviour.
https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/academic-integrity

This four week course will explore the concept of academic integrity and how you can demonstrate it in your work, study and research at university. The objective of the course is to help university students understand the meaning of academic integrity and how to avoid academic dishonesty, misconduct and plagiarism. Additionally, and equally importantly, this course will help learners develop study skills and academic writing skills needed to act in accordance with those values, and thus achieve with integrity.
