TPC+R Workshop
TPC+R Spring 2017

Starting January 23, 2017, ECDS will run its annual Teaching, Pedagogy, Curriculum + Research 6-week workshop for graduate students. TPC+R presents an opportunity for graduate students to explore how to use new technologies in their research and teaching with the support of ECDS staff. During the course of the program, participants will be introduced to an array of digital tools for teaching, discuss practical and theoretical models for using technology in their pedagogy, and receive assistance in developing materials for their own courses.

Data Visualization in R

Friday February 17, 2017 1:00-5:00pm
Woodruff Library Room 314

In this workshop, you will become familiar with R’s popular graphing capabilities as we spend time exploring the packages “ggplot2” and “plotly.” No prior experience with R is necessary (a review of the R-Studio interface is included). We will use R’s built-in datasets to explore scatterplots in ggplot2, while learning many of the versatile features that make R the leading statistical software for creating publication-ready graphs.

Please RSVP as seating is limited.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a set of tools that allow users to store, manipulate, analyze, and present spatial data. This workshop will provide an introduction to the ArcGIS desktop software as we explore ways in which GIS and mapping can enhance research in a number of disciplines and may be a useful tool to add to your research skills. Beginners welcome! For more information, download the flyer.
