Workshops for Learning Python and R
In 2017, I began creating workshops centered around programming and educational data science. The first of these workshops focused on teaching Python for the purpose of processing clickstream data. I also established workshops focused on teaching R to data analysis and visualization. Many of the students who have completed previous workshops go on to lead lessons, with many of the School of Education graduate students leading the way. These workshops have created a thriving community of students, postdocs, faculty, visiting scholars, who use Python and R in their work.
You can find links to these workshops here:
