Data are the observations made upon the environment which are the results of measurements.   Environmental professionals collect data  for analysis, which is then used to make decisions.  We need to be able to collect relevant data in the appropriate samples sizes, in order to measure our environment, with the least amount of error.

The following topics will be covered in this course:

  • Importance of data collection
  • Types of environmental data collected
  • Developing a data collection plan
  • Calculating basic data statistics (mean, standard deviation, etc)
  • Determining statistically valid sample sizes
  • Calculating confidence intervals for the mean
  • Developing operational definitions for the metrics
  • Data sampling strategies (random, systemic, etc)
  • Introduction to data measurement error (accuracy and precision)

We will cover these topics and more in only two weeks!  This is a great opportunity to enhance your analytical skills and improve your overall knowledge of data collection.  Hands-on data management and the preparation of instructor lead assignments are all part of this workshop.

This introductory workshop is offered online and can be completed on your own schedule over the course of two weeks.  Each week you will be able to participate in classroom discussions, watch video presentations and complete class assignments all from the convenience of your home or office.   Plus, you can work on the class at a time that is most suitable to your schedule.  There is no need to log in at any particular time to participate in this program.
