R Open Lab: semi-structured opportunities for learning R
Part of the Rfun learning series
Come once or come each week: This six-week, semi-guided hour provides a safe and comfortable environment for learning more about the R programming language, RStudio, and the Tidyverse. The curriculum is based on the Master the Tidyverse workshop. The series goal is to enable researchers and students a low-stress hour to hone your own data savvy skills. Attendees will gain greater familiarity with a tool-suite designed to foster reproducibility and transparency vital for the researcher's workflow.
In the first meeting we will introduce R, RStudio and the Tidyverse as well as outline several self-directed learning resources (below). Follow and join any of the the remining weekly sessions. Each week covers a new topic in the Master the Tidyverse series. Reinforcement is on-your-own through self-directed resources. Assignments are optional. Intermediate and advanced users will, optionally, design your own curriculum and benefit from interacting and supporting a helpful network of campus R users.
