Tools for reading and writing about data
Open-source tools like R and Python make it data analyses accessible and relatively easy to conduct – but once we do, how do we communicate about what we found? How do we understand what others are communicating? This iSkills workshop will equip you with tips and resources for critically engaging with writing about data.
By the end of this workshop, students will be able to:
- Better interpret data-centric research papers
- Examine the ways that data-focused methods and results are (and are not!) written about to better evaluate research
- Explore a selection of online resources and tools for communicating about data
