Visualization in R using ggplot2

Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. In this workshop we will focus on ggplot2, a library for R that creates clear and well-designed visualizations and that plays well with other tidyverse packages. Attendees will get up and running quickly with ggplot2, going through a variety of examples to learn how to understand, modify, and create ggplot2 visualizations. Building basic skills with visualization will improve your ability to create quick, exploratory visualizations for data analysis as well as more formal, outward-facing visualizations for presentations or publications.

While prior experience with ggplot2 and with other tidyverse packages is not required, some basic familiarity with R is expected.  Please consider attending an Introduction to R workshop (or reviewing onling learning materials) before attending this workshop on ggplot2. In this workshop, we will use RStudio and RMarkdown files for all exercises.


  • You will be expected to arrive with RRStudio, and the tidyverse package already installed on the machine you're Zooming from if you want to work along with me or do the exercises during the workshop.
  • If you need help with something during the session, you'll be expected to share your screen.

This event is offered virtually in accordance with Duke's Coronavirus-19 Events policies. A zoom link will be sent via email to registered participants to join the workshop.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published, please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.
