This workshop provides an overview of ways Excel can be used to structure and even analyze data and to create presentations. It starts with examining basic tools and functions in Excel (including ways that Excel can be used to manage textual data, to combine or divide data cells and sources, and to perform calculations such as sum, average, minimum, and maximum). It then proceeds to an overview of how to sort and transpose data and create graphs and tables. Finally, it reviews how to perform basic statistical operations, including counts, frequencies, and even simple linear regressions, in Excel.

SSRI~ Workshop: Qualitative Data Collection & Management

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Qualitative Data Collection & Management-This workshop provides an introduction to a range of qualitative research methods as well as an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Qualitative research methods, including in-depth interviews, focus groups, archival analysis, and participant observation, vary considerably in the resources and time required to execute them reliably, and in the types of data they generate. Which data collection techniques are appropriate to which kinds of research questions and projects, and how do you execute these methods well? How are issues of reliability and validity considered and weighed in qualitative research? We will also explore different ways of managing your data prior to commencing data collection in order to facilitate the transition to data analysis. Some time will be given to the role of NVivo software in facilitating data management and preparing for data analysis.

DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Humanists

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2018-10-03 17:00
Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
Humanists work with various media, content and materials (sources) as part of their research. These sources can be considered data. This workshop will introduce data management practices for humanities researchers to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a humanities lens with discipline-based, concrete examples. While general good data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the humanities are the intended audience for this workshop.

A new national academies report on the integration of the humanities and arts with STEM says that interleaving these disciplines is crucial. Pamela L. Jennings, a professor of Art and Design at North Carolina State University and a contributor to the report, joins with Duke faculty Paul Bendich and Priscilla Wald for a panel discussion of the future of humanities, STEM and learning at Duke.

The panel will examine what integration of the sciences and the humanities looks like, how humanities and STEM collaborations can be integrated in the curriculum and the co-curriculum, as well as ideas for allowing students to participate in Duke’s interdisciplinary culture.

Moderated by: Maria LaMonaca Wisdom, Director of Graduate Student Advising and Engagement for the Humanities, Duke Graduate School

Panelists:

  • Pamela L. Jennings, Professor and Head of the Department of Art + Design, North Carolina State University;
  • Paul L. Bendich, Associate Research Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Duke University; and
  • Priscilla Wald, R. Florence Brinkley Professor of English, Duke University.

BRITE Ideas: Student Learning Dispositions: What are they, how we can measure them, and what are the implications for teaching?

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Tue, 2018-10-02 16:00
Rubenstein Library 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)
West Campus

Learning is not simply a function of cognition, rather, learning is mediated and moderated by a range of beliefs and emotions. Join Julie Reynolds, Associate Professor of the Practice, Biology, as we explore how teaching techniques can impact these learning dispositions in positive and negative ways. Various personal dimensions, particularly motivation, self-efficacy beliefs, and epistemic beliefs, can change in response to teaching and affect student learning. Reynolds will also share her research, which has considered the combined contribution of these dimensions to student learning in the context of disciplinary writing. BRITE Ideas is a monthly teaching and research series event and is cosponsored by BRITE Lab and Duke Learning Innovation.

 

Please feel free to bring your lunch. Light refreshments will be provided.

VFF: Teaching Computing via Visualization

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2018-09-28 16:00
LSRC D106
The following is not a particularly controversial statement: "In order to create a data visualization using [software/language], you first need to learn that [software/language]." But if one of the more exciting things you can do with [software/language] is data visualization, why not start learning [software/language] by learning to build data visualizations? In this talk we present a data-centric approach to teaching and learning R through creating data visualizations, as opposed to starting with fundamentals of R as a programming language. The talk will feature examples of in class activities, details of a curriculum that introduces students to data science through data visualization, and sample student work.

Other (see event description)
East Campus

Teaching takes time and energy, two of faculty's most precious and limited resources. In this workshop, faculty will discuss how to direct their time and energy to promote learning while also making time for their other responsibilities (especially writing).

Participants will:

  1. Track how they are spending their time and energy on teaching;
  2. Assess the effectiveness of these choices for student learning;
  3. Discover principles and strategies that enhance efficiency and learning.

Workshop leader: Dr. Monique Dufour, an award-winning teacher with extensive experience in faculty development.

Space is limited. RSVP to Vanessa Turnier (vrt@duke.edu) by September 25. 

Location: East Duke Building, Pink Parlor Room

This event is co-sponsored by the Faculty Write Program, an initiative of the Thompson Writing Program, and Learning Innovation.

The Faculty Write Program helps advance faculty as writers through workshops, retreats, writing groups, and individual consultations. Please visit the website for more information: faculty write.duke.edu
