Event Details


FREE Open Data Master Classes


Following the unprecedented success of the first series, Horizon Digital Economy Research and Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in partnership with Ordnance Survey, GeoVation, Esri UK and National Insitute for Adult Learning (Niace) is proud to announce a second series of FREE one-day Open Data Master Classes. These classes will reach a wide cross section of people (i.e. individuals, communities, grassroots organisations, NGOs to civil servants and professionals) who will benefit from a greater understanding of the opportunities around open data as well as providing them with the tools and techniques needed to use and analyse a range of Open Datasets relevant to them; for example, school census data, crime statistics and transportation data.


The Open Data Master Classes combine theory and practical sessions given by guest lecturers within the fields of government, academia and business. The Master Classes will provide participants the opportunity to use and harness Open Datasets from various government departments and public sector organisations including; Higher Education, Health Care, Transport and Environment. Participants will learn a range of techniques from data collection and processing to data analysis and map visualisation. The content of the Master Classes is suitable for a wider spectrum of participants with various levels of IT experience, although some familiarity with web browsing and Microsoft Excel is assumed.


The Open Data Master Classes form part of a series of classes starting in June 2011 at the following institutions:

Swansea University - 1st June 2011

The University of Manchester - 16th June 2011

The University of Nottingham - 24th June 2011

Newcastle University - 11th July 2011

The University of Reading - 21st July 2011

We will be able to offer each master class to 30-40 participants with the exception of Newcastle University which will be limited to 26 participants. We have secured use of purpose built facilitates within each university including state-of-the-art lecture theatres and computer rooms.

The University of Reading

The University of Reading is ranked as one of the UK’s 20 most research-intensive universities and as one of the top 200 universities in the world. We enjoy a world-class reputation for teaching, research and enterprise. Established as an extension college of Christ Church, Oxford in 1892, we received a Royal Charter in 1926, the only university to do so between the two world wars. Important achievements include being the first university to win the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement (1989) and receiving the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education three times (1998, 2006 and 2009).
