PLACE: Premises of Sabadell of the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel

The aim of this course is to give an introduction to R to people that has never
used R. By the end of the course, the participants should be able to do the
following in R: Import/export data bases to/from R, manage data sets, carry out
basic statistical analysis with R, draw high quality graphs and, program
Guided practice with R – Students are encouraged to bring a dataset with them
along with a “previously completed” statistical analysis or graphic. Ideally
something fairly introductory and simple from the student’s own field of
practice that you’ve worked with in Excel, SAS, or elsewhere. We will use last
lesson session to review all the steps to ensure students can load, check, tidy
data and then perform the basic statistics or generate the graphs common in
their respective disciplines. This time also usually provides opportunity to
troubleshoot and learn to navigate web resources to find solutions to errors.
Extra datasets will be available for students that prefer not to bring their own
work or who want extra practice at specific skills.
Please feel free to distribute this information between your colleagues if you
consider it appropriate.
With best regards
Soledad De Esteban-Trivigno, PhD.
