Week 11: end-of-block reflections

This is the final week of the ‘governing’ with data theme. The central focus of this week is to round up your understanding of the relationships between data and ‘governance’, focusing on key themes and ideas that you have encountered over the block. The data visualisation you produce this week will also be your last on the theme of ‘governing’, so use this opportunity to explore some ideas that you have found particularly relevant to your thinking in the past couple of weeks. Also note that this will be your last data visualisation of the course, so draw on your wealth of experience and try to round off the task with a flourish!

Alongside producing your final data visualisation for the course, you will also write an end-of-block summary post for the ‘governance’ theme, which should include reflection on how your data visualisation practice over the previous three weeks has helped you to think ‘governing’ with data, drawing on the literature from the block to support your discussion.

Your key tasks this week will be to:

  • Finish reading the core and secondary literature for this block
  • Produce your weekly data visualisation
  • Write your end-of-block summary post in your blog
