Quickly emerging fields like Big Data create a pedagogic challenge, as they demand a fast and focused build-up of competences in academia and industry.
In our active learning workshop, we will train the participants in systematic course design for big data teaching. We give a comprehensive overview of the different dimensions which have to be considered in order to put a suitable course together and explain the various design options available in each dimension. In addition, we present best practices and experiences that we gained in academia and executive education.
Furthermore, participants get the chance to design their own big data training course. In a roundtable discussion, the resulting designs will be discussed and evaluated with respect to their effectiveness and feasibility in different contexts.
