    The Statistical Consulting Centre at the University of Melbourne is offering a workshop on  Introduction to R and Reproducible Research.

    This workshop covers the tools needed to efficiently work with data using R, particularly focusing on importing, rearranging, describing and visualising data.

    This workshop has a focus on reproducible research, which means making sure that all of steps in analysing your data are recorded and could be run again automatically: by you, if you discover an error in your data file or a step in your data processing; by a colleague, to do a similar analysis on their own data; or by someone else to verify your results.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • the basics of R and RStudio;
    • using R Markdown to tie together your R code, output and analytical decisions;
    • the benefits of a reproducible approach to data analysis;
    • concepts relating to types of data and how to best organise the data you collect;
    • importing data from commonly used file formats including Excel and CSV;
    • practical data-cleaning tasks to get your original data ready for analysis;
    • methods for summarising and describing data;
    • producing high-quality graphics with the ‘ggplot’ package;
    • presenting results from statistical analyses in tables and graphs.

    Presenters: Cameron Patrick and Dr Sandy Clarke-Errey

    This is a two day workshop.
