EDSC for lecturers
The Erasmus Data Service Centre (EDSC) offers lecturers tailored instructions and data sets that allow students to practice with data.
The EDSC’s Datateam may assist during lectures by showing students how to gather data. Biweekly on Monday group instructions on Datastream and Thomson One Banker are given in the University Library. Workshops on WRDS will take place biweekly on Wednesdays in the University Library. The Bloomberg workshop are given biweekly on Thursdays.
In consultation with lecturers, elements from these instructions may be used in lectures or practical training sessions.
Delivery of data sets for exercises
Students may also practice with data sets delivered in advance. The data sets may be general selections or selections tailored to the exercise questions. The Datateam may deliver more data (including definitions) than is necessary so that students may learn to select relevant data. For example, for an exercise on Dutch cyclical and countercyclical stocks we can deliver a data set with data on all Dutch stocks and one or more indices for a specific period.
If you are interested in these services, please contact the Datateam by sending a question form with the remark ‘Datateam service for lecturers’ in the question field.
