Data Engagement: Using Hands-on Workshops to Promote Literacy in Data Science

The goal of this project is to develop and administer workshops that raise the computational competencies of undergraduate and graduate students, specifically addressing skills necessary to succeed in data-intensive scientific research. This suite of workshops will provide students at Montana State University (MSU) with a basic understanding of coding, with introductions to data processing, visualization, and analysis. Introductory and intermediate R workshops will be offered at the beginning of each semester. Workshops on data visualization in R and data wrangling in R will be developing in Fall 2018 and offered in Spring 2019. In order to broaden the impact of these workshops to a wider audience, curriculum materials and workshop recordings will be published with Creative Commons licenses in MSU ScholarWorks, MSU's open access institutional repository; the MSU ScholarWorks links will be further distributed via a landing page on the Library website, designed by MSU Creative Services.
