Scholarly Communications Workshops

Do you teach with data? Faculty may request workshops for students in the Making Data Bearable Workshop Series:

During these hands-on workshops, participants explore challenges and best practices related to research data management. Working in groups, participants perform a rudimentary data analysis and create figures and tables capturing the correlation between Gummi Bear flavor and "springiness".
