- AIT722 - Theories and Models in Geo-Social Data Analytics (Fall 2020, 2021)

This course introduces a broad spectrum of social theories, conceptual models, machine learning techniques, and computational modeling that are used in or related to Smart and Connected Communities (S&CC). I designed this course based on research and practical articles from multiple disciplines that study local communities such as information science, computational social science, and human-computer interaction. Graduate students who are interested in (1) local community issues, (2) smart cities, and (3) geo-social data analytics and visualization are encouraged to take this course.

AIT602 - Introduction to Research in Applied IT (Spring 2020, 2021)

I re-designed this course to introduce diverse reserach methods for information science research. Particularly, this course discusses modern computational techniques used in information science research by placing them on the spectrum of traditional social science methods and provides various techniques and technologies that enable traditional methods to scale with big data. Graduate students who want to develop fundamental research skills in Information Science are encouraged to take this course.
