Course description:

The course focuses on aspects of academic writing and professional communication relevant for Statistics and Data Science. Through class activities and materials, students will be able to understand and analyze how writing and communication support typical problems and rhetorical situations in Statistics and Data Science. Students will learn how to assess and respond to communicative expectations of standard data-related tasks, such as asking, discussing, and documenting relevant research questions, visualizing, describing, and explaining data, communicating research claims with an appropriate degree of certainty, and reporting on data-based research (both orally and in writing).
