Rfun - Very Gentle Intro to R: Data Transformations, Data Structures, and the Tidyverse

Wed, 2019-04-17 22:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Some People have asked for a slow motion introduction to R and the Tidyverse using RStudio.  In this two-hour, hands-on session we will assume no knowledge of programming or statistical analysis.  Class size will be limited to 20 students.  The pace will be deliberate as we gently describe all the major functions of RStudio, aka the development environment.  Along the way, we will introduce data wrangling, data types, variable assignments, and packages. Our focus will be the Tidyverse, specifically the dplyr package. Tidyverse is an approachable set of consistent data science tools enabling the R statistical programming language.

NOTE:  Bring your laptop.  The Edge Workshop Room does not provide computers.

NOTE 2:  If you need help configuring your laptop for this workshop, come to the DVS Walk-In Hours before the workshop:  Wednesdays between 1-3pm.  (Floor Map for Bostock Library > 1st Floor > Brandaleone Lab for Data and Visualization Services.)

NOTE 3:  Workshop location is different than the location for laptop configuration help.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

Human resources departments have traditionally relied on intuition and anecdotal information to make decisions about recruitment, retention, and work culture. The field of people analytics is new to most HR departments and seeks to apply statistical thinking and data analysis to every step of the employee life cycle in order to help organizations make the best decisions possible. Data visualization and data storytelling become central priorities, allowing complex ideas to be communicated to audiences with all levels of data literacy. In this presentation, I'll walk through a variety of visual analyses created in the first year of people analytics in the Duke health system.

From Shipping Crate to Exhibit Case: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection

Fri, 2019-04-12 15:00
Rubenstein Library 153 (Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly Room)
West Campus

In April 2015, the Lisa Unger Baskin Collection arrived at the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University. Comprising over 11,000 rare books and thousands of manuscripts, journals, ephemera, and artifacts, the Baskin Collection includes many well-known monuments of women’s history and arts as well as lesser-known works produced by female scholars, printers, publishers, laborers, scientists, authors, artists, and political activists.

“From Shipping Crate to Exhibit Case” looks at the comprehensive work of libraries, including how we organize, conserve, describe, and exhibit, through the lens of this unique collection.

Our new exhibit Five Hundred Years of Women’s Work: The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection will be available for viewing after the program, in the Mary Duke Biddle Room.

Free and open to the public.
