ACTiSS, a MOOC for learning computational science

ACTiSS: Action for computational social science

With a society increasingly turbulent, the demand for social scientists who are capable of analysing behavioral dynamics using computational methods is rising. ACTiSS is an educational project aimed at fostering the development of computational thinking among social science students and young professionals. Together with the Universities of Warsaw and Groeningen, the HIIG is developing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) that combines academic expertise and real-world examples from politics, economics, sociology and other areas in which computational models are used to analyse societal processes. The project aims to promote students’ computational skills and reduce barriers to computational thinking. All digital training and teaching materials will be freely available to learners and teachers.
