Statistics and Information Technologies course takes basic statistical concepts and extends them to topics of special relevance in agricultural studies. The course is intended to provide an insight what is needed to successfully analyze data in behavioural sciences. The aim of the course is to train students to become interdisciplinary collaborators and to reveal the value of statistical thinking in interdisciplinary collaborations.
The unit of Information Technologies has objectives:
•to enable students’ understanding of basic concepts of technology in information processing,
•to make students acquainted with computer software (such as spreadsheets and word processors) installation, application, maintenance and administration.
