RDS offers regular workshops, a brown bag series on data management topics, and the opportunity for specialized training for your department or lab.
We hold free workshops open to anyone at UW-Madison. Upcoming workshops are listed below:
Digital Scholarship & Publishing Office Hours — Thursdays, from January 31 until May 2, from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
We can provide assistance with (but not limited to!) the following: publishing methods, platforms; copyright, author’s rights, fair use; digital humanities projects; selecting or applying tools, platforms; developing and planning digital projects; data management and sharing. Open to all.
Office hours are held in the reference area on the second floor of Memorial Library on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month, and in room 109 of Steenbock Library on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month.
Documenting your analysis in a way that is understandable to a colleague (or yourself 3 months later) can be challenging. One way to make reports more readable, even by people who don’t code, is to alternate human-readable text with machine-readable code. This workshop will cover creating reproducible reports of this type using knitr. A basic working knowledge of R and R Studio would be helpful. Registration is full, but you can join a waitlist here
