CEHD Research Methodology Consulting Center workshop: Foundations and Applications of R (FAR): Tidying, Visualizing, Modeling Monday, August 12, 2019 | 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Bruininks Hall 131B

Foundations and Applications of R (FAR): Tidying, Visualizing, Modeling is a new RMCC weeklong workshop, August 12–16, to support social scientists seeking to develop new, or deepen their existing, R programming skills for analyzing complex social science data. No prior experience with R or any other programming language is necessary. We’ll start with fundamental concepts and practices to get everyone on the same page, and then dive into visualization and advanced analysis.
 
We are capping enrollment at 25, and will have two experienced instructors present, to ensure that participants have the support they need to move their R abilities to the next level.
 
Instructors: Jeffrey K. Bye, Ph.D. and Ethan C. Brown, Ph.D.
