In recent years, the statistical programming language R has become one of the foremost open source technologies in data science. Institutional researchers can take advantage of this language and related tools to build capacity in data management, analysis, and visualization. In this hands-on workshop, bring your laptops and we’ll walk you through the whole process, right from installing the software you’ll need to analyzing data. No previous experiences with R or programming is necessary. Participants will be able to take home materials from the workshop to continue honing their skills.
