DVS Workshop: Increasing Openness and Reproducibility in Quantitative Research

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2017-10-03 13:00
"There are many actions researchers can take to increase the openness and reproducibility of their work. Please join us for a workshop, hosted by the Center for Open Science, to learn easy, practical steps researchers can take to increase the reproducibility of their work. The workshop will be hands-on. Using example studies, attendees will actively participate in creating a reproducible project from start to finish. Topics covered include project documentation, version control, pre-analysis plans, and open source tools like the Open Science Framework.This workshop is aimed at graduate students and postdocs, across disciplines, who are engaged in quantitative research. The workshop does not require any specialized knowledge of programming. Participants will gain a foundation for incorporating reproducible, transparent practices into their current workflows. Attendees will need to bring their own laptop in order to fully participate."

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2017-10-02 17:30
R has become a popular mapping option for those who want to easily switch between spatial and statistical analysis and reproduce/share the code easily. This workshop will demonstrate how to import and view shapefiles, run statistical analysis, and create a leaflet map which can be used online. Prerequisites: Intro to R: Data Transformations, Analysis, and Data Structures. Please attend this workshop or watch the video. Knowledge of GIS concepts is recommended.

DVS Workshop: Adobe Illustrator to Enhance Charts and Graphs

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2017-09-29 13:00
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of using Adobe Illustrator, the professional standard in vector graphics software, for fine-tuning charts and graphs created in other programs like Excel, Matlab and R. Many people avoid using Illustrator because of its steep learning curve, but you will see that once you know a few basic tools, it is quite easy to give all your work a consistent look, extra highlights and annotations, and that professional edge. There are no prerequisites - we will start with the basics. (Note that the material presented here is a more complete and expanded treatment of the last section of my previous Illustrator workshops where chart modification always got squeezed into the last half-hour, which was not enough time.)
