Teaching

"Tom will be leading the new MA in Media, Data and Society starting in Autumn 2021. He's particularly looking forward to teaching the two core modules in Big Data and Society, which focus on big data and how it is collected and used in modern society; in the politics and policy questions around social media and algorithm use; and in the interactions between media, platforms, and citizens. He also enjoys teaching research methods, especially to those with no previous experience of quantitative and computational approaches."
