Learning Objectives

The course aims at improving student’s Informatics skills with regard to the needs of their future occupation in the field of sociology and of social work, providing a linkage between information science, and sociology and social work. A starting overall introduction to Information and Computer science will undertake the distinction between information and data on one hand, and between hardware and software on the other hand. On this basis, general discourse will turn on the empirical use of Informatics for social scientists. In their individual professional activities sociologists and social workers are asked to use a variety of tools developed by information and computer science. Students will improve their individual skills on editing and managing texts, developing spreadsheets data analysis and graphs, framing complex communication via email and social networks, displaying results slides on a screen, storing files and organizing folders as well as sharing and transferring on the cloud, searching activities for references, information and data through the Internet and featured datasets. A part of the course will focus on applications used massively within the community of professional sociologists and social workers.
