  *   Dr. Friedolin Merhout, assistant professor at the Sociologisk Institut at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He is the Director of Graduate Studies for the interdisciplinary MSc in Social Data Science.
Nelimarkka and Merhout will discuss strategies for engaging with students and building the skills needed to design, plan, and conduct studies using computational social science methods. They will offer examples from their own experience in course design and teaching - including how to work past problems students sometimes have when trying to learn these complex concepts.
