It's been a great summer of lectures. 15 presentations on social media data and research, measuring exposure to news and misinformation, innovative ways to use everyday tools in predicting health outcomes; we've had a ton of fun this summer, and we're ending it on a great note with these three events (note the different start times)!

Still time to sign up for the last short workshop of 2021!

Social Science Data and Model Visualization in R
Boris Shor, University of Houston

This course will introduce social science students to modern methods of exploring and communicating data to a variety of audiences. The primary tools will be the R statistical programming language, RStudio as a development environment, and the tidyverse family of R packages (especially ggplot2) for visualization. The object will be to enable students to feel confident in descriptively exploring their data, communicating that to scholarly and outside audiences, and communicating inferential results for presentation and paper writing purposes. Throughout, good workflow practices for scientific writing will be emphasized.

Syllabus

Prerequisites: A basic knowledge of R is required.
