Statistical Education Workshop 2022
Date: Sunday May 29, 2022
Time: 13:30 - 17:00 (EDT)
Title: Reproducibility Workshop
Tiffany Timbers, University of British Columbia
Wesley Burr, Trent University
This workshop will equip participants with tools (Git/GitHub, R/Rstudio and `renv`- an R dependency management tool) and best practices for implementing data analysis workflows that promote collaboration and reproducibility. These tools and workflows are integral to creating reproducible and transparent research - research where the same result can be reached given the same input, computational methods, and conditions, as well as one that has a history which records how and why decisions were made that shaped the analysis. These tools and principles have also transformed the teaching of statistics, facilitating the development of active and experiential learning.
