Data Management and Reproducibility: Enabling Open and Transparent Research through Data Sharing

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2017-01-30 18:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Making data available within repositories is an essential aspect of supporting open and transparent research. Today as science is tackling the so-called “reproducibility crisis”, researchers are increasingly faced with journal requirements to share their data for the purposes of verification. This workshop will explore the concept of reproducibility, the growth in journal data sharing policies, and present strategies to help researchers share data that meet standards for reproducibility and reuse.

Do you want to find out how geographic information (GIS) software can aid your research? This class will provide an overview of how ArcGIS software can help you analyze or visualize digital data that has a locational component, as well as discuss starting points for obtaining data and ways for managing your GIS project. Examples will focus on social science data, but attendees are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own needs and will be welcome to make one-on-one appointments later for more focused instruction.

DVS Workshop: Data Visualization with Excel

For many basic charts and graphs, Excel is one of the easiest ways to create a data visualization. Figuring out how to get Excel to produce exactly the chart you want, however, can be a bit of a headache. In this workshop, we will learn how to create and modify many different charts within Excel, in addition to learning how PivotTables can help arrange the data in the best way for the chart we want. We will also cover how to get the best results when taking charts out of Excel and putting them into documents, presentations, and other programs. Note: this workshop focuses on the charting capabilities of Excel and starts from a beginning level. While some experience with Excel is encouraged, this is not an advanced Excel workshop. Recordings of additional Excel workshops: - Basic Data Cleaning and Analysis for Data Tables - Advanced Excel for Data Projects

DVS Workshop: Graphic Design for Conceptual Diagrams

Well-designed diagrams aren't just pretty; they convey information effectively by working in concert with human perception. The problem is that effective graphic design isn't intuitive - it takes some training that not many of us have had. The good news is that with a bit of guidance, we can quickly make large improvements in what we produce and recognize how to improve what we've created in the past. In this workshop you will learn a few core principles of good graphic design, some common visual metaphors for conveying your ideas, and practice visual brainstorming for more creative communication. There are no prerequisites, but you may want to compliment this workshop by taking the Adobe Illustrator workshop the following week!

In Pakistan, more than 1000 women perceived as having compromised the "honor" of their families are reported to be killed each year. Families are often pressured to forgive and absolve the aggressors, which allows them to return to the community. Told through the lens of a love story, this Oscar-nominated documentary examines the tensions between modernism and tradition in Pakistan. Directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Oscar-winning Saving Face), the film follows Saba, a young Pakistani woman, who has survived her attempted honor killing by her own family.

Film Screening: "Censored Voices" (Mor Loushy, 2015, 84 min, Israel/Germany, in Hebrew and English w/ English Subtitles, Color, Digital)/ On June 5, 1967, the armies of Egypt, Syria, and Jordan amass on Israel's borders, threatening annihilation. Six days later, the war ends with Israel's decisive victory - conquests of Gaza, Sinai, and the West Bank, tripling the tiny country's size. Streets brim with joy, but behind the euphoria and a proud new national narrative of invincibility, are other voices. One week after the war, author Amos Oz audio-records intimate conversations with Israeli soldiers fresh from the battlefield. These provocative tapes, censored until now, are the core of a startling film about the tragic paradox of Zionism and the contradictions that arise when a people seeking freedom turn occupier, when David becomes Goliath. The soldiers' harrowing confessions, combined with rare archival footage and evocative sound design, create a sense of stunning immediacy. As they wrestle with the systemic excision of Palestinians, the dehumanizing nature of war, and echoes of the Holocaust, we listen as these men, now almost 50 years older, hear the recordings for the first time, and the past erupts, presciently, into the present./-- Winner for Best Documentary at Awards of the Israeli Film Academy (2015)! / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oB8EFlf4-M
