SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop offers an overview of the SAS programming language, focusing on data management activities. Session 1 is a general overview of SAS with a focus on major SAS components (Program Editor, Log and Output), core concepts of SAS programming (DATA and PROC), and issues of importing/exporting, reading, and writing SAS datasets. Session 2 focuses on data modification, including variable creation and variable recoding, as well as adding to and subsettting from particular datasets. Key SAS statements described include: ATTRIB, SET, WHERE, IF-THEN, MERGE. Session 3 focuses on data analysis, specifically descriptive analyses typically used in data management. Key SAS statements described include: PROC CONTENTS, PROC MEANS, and PROC FREQ. Session 4 focuses on key components of data management of a dataset or a project. This includes: checking data consistency across statistical platforms, checking and recoding variable values, creating variable labels, scoring variables, and matching and merging datasets. Together, these four sessions allow researchers to learn basic data management processes using the SAS statistical system.

Presenter: Julie Grundy, Information Architect - Duke Web Services

User Experience (UX) Design is a hot topic right now as our digital space is evolving to a device-agnostic world. Even if you aren’t sure what “UX” means, it undoubtably is incorporated into your daily life.  Join us to get an overview of the components that make up the field of UX, and learn practical ways you can incorporate design theory into your life. 

This Lunch and Learn will include:

  • overview of the concept of UX design
  • practical design theories to take with you
  • examples of user experience being applied at Duke
  • resources to learn more 

Critical thinking is required, laptops not necessary. 


SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Management Strategies and Techniques

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2015-10-29 16:00
Thu, Oct 29, 2015
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
Compared to survey research, data management strategies in qualitative research are often ad-hoc, and produced after the data collection process has been completed. Different qualitative methods produce different types of data and require different analytical approaches, yet there are several strategies worth considering for managing your data and can be planned and deployed prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition from data collection to data analysis. This workshop will cover a range of qualitative data management strategies in order to help researchers plan for data collection, or to help researchers manage data during or after the collection process. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.
