Course Description
This course builds on “Intro to R” or “Data Science with R: Introduction”. In this course we will build on the participants’ prior knowledge of R, focusing on using R for exploratory data analysis and the production of more complex research visualisations. At the end of the course, participants will have reached an intermediate-level knowledge of R and obtained the skills to visualise their research data. This course does not intend to cover in-depth statistical theory. If you are unsure whether this course is at the right level for you, there is a self-evaluation test available at the website of You Say Data.

Notes for workshop participants: R (>4.0) and RStudio will need to be installed prior to the course; a second screen has been recommend by past participants 

1 Credit Point can be obtained by attending this course. Please contact your faculty for the recognition of performance for the doctoral degree.


This workshop is fully booked. Registration is not longer possible.
