DVS Workshop: Building Blocks for Reproducibility: GitHub and GitLab
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work.GitHub and GitLab are social coding platforms which enable collaboration. Built upon the Git (version control) framework these tools make social coding and code sharing more accessible. Learn how to create branches, create remote repositories, leverage the GitHub/GitLab interface for simpler "reverts", and collaborate with others. To fully participate in this workshop, please bring your own laptop. This workshop requires that you have already configured RStudio with Git, a topic covered on Sept. 25. Prerequisite: RStudio and Git. All attendees are expected to be familiar with the R Studio environment (See Intro to R).
SSRI~ Workshop: Teamwork in NVivo
This workshop will introduce researchers to the basics collaborating in NVivo, a qualitative data analysis software. Participants will learn strategies for working as a team with NVivo, how to manage data and files, compare coding, and establish intercoder reliability. Windows and Mac users welcome, however please be aware that limitations exist if you are collaborating cross-platform. Registration required; please click here to access the registration form.
MLBytes Speaker Series
Dr. Justin Ellis will be speaking about his work with visual dialog. Visual dialog is an exciting new field in AI that requires an AI agent to hold meaningful dialog with humans in natural, conversational language about visual content, combining techniques from computer vision, natural language processing, and dialog systems research. Dr. Ellis is a data scientist at Infinia ML. Before joining Infinia ML, Justin was an Einstein Postdoctoral Fellow at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and California Institute of Technology. His research focused on analysis of astrophysical data for gravitational wave detection, and he led a multi-institute team of researchers in statistical analysis and software development. Justin received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and has authored or co-authored numerous peer-reviewed publications. Dinner and refreshments will be provided!

DVS Workshop: Mapping with R
R has become a popular and reproducible option for supporting spatial and statistical analysis. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how to plot x/y coordinates; how to generate thematic chloropleths with US Census and other federal data; import shapefiles; and create interactive maps on the web. Prerequisite: Intro to R. All attendees are expected to be basically familiar with R, R Studio, and the Tidyverse.
SSRI~ Workshop: Designing Survey Questionnaires and Survey Experiments
This workshop examines question wording and questionnaire design for online and paper questionnaires. This course does not include programming (which is offered in the separate Qualtrics workshop), but focuses on the conceptual issues and considerations underpinning questionnaire design, question wording, and response options. This workshop also provides an introduction to conducting survey experiments, including a brief motivation for when and why to use an experiment, common experimental designs, constructing experimental manipulations, and analysis.
