Each class will have two separate components: the lecture will focus on the conceptual dimension of network analysis, including pre-reading assignments, classroom discussions and some slides. This will take about 45 minutes. The class is then followed by the laboratory part, where students will work through learning activities, including example codes and expanded questions.
Based on the skills gained from the lectures, each student will write a final report where an empirical research question is explored using some analysis methods demonstrated during the classes. Students will be evaluated only based on the final report.
