Reflection on Development and Delivery of a Data Mining Unit

Stewart, B.

    Educators developing data mining courses face a difficult task of designing curricula that are adaptable, have solid foundations, and are tailored to students from different academic fields. This task could be facilitated by debating and sharing the ideas and experiences gained from the practice of data mining as well as from teaching data mining. The shared body of knowledge would be a valuable resource which would help educators design better data mining curricula. The aim of this paper is to make a contribution to such a debate. The paper presents a reflection and evaluation of the author's experience with developing and delivering a postgraduate unit Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining.
