It’s a new semester so we have a new set of data workshops lined up! This spring we have introductory workshops on 
  • Data analysis and visualization tools — R, Stata, Tableau, Excel
  • Computational science tools — Unix, Python, Github, LaTeX
  • Online survey and qualitative research tools — Qualtrics, Dedoose. 
Plus, we have specialized sessions on 
  • Methods in R — Exploratory Factor Analysis, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Linear Mixed Effect Modeling, Text Analytics
  • Reproducibility and OSF, literate data science in Stata, data sharing and archiving, and Census data. 

As always, they’re free! And they start next week. View the full schedule and register.

... But Wait! There’s More!
