This 3 day workshop is ideal for students and researchers looking to learn R programming quickly in an immersive, hands-on setting. Live and learn aboard the RV Garvin for 3 days during which you will rotate through small group sessions introducing you to critical R skills and break sessions where you will have the opportunity to explore beautiful South Florida habitats from mangroves to coral reefs.
This style of learning is ideal for mastering complex skills, giving participants plenty of time to process information, practice new techniques, and ask questions.Students are encouraged to bring their own data sets and will have opportunities to work on their own projects and troubleshoot with the instructor.
This course is ideal for both young and established biologists interested in becoming proficient in R programming and ecological modelling techniques, and is suitable for both beginner and intermediate R users.
The course consists of three modules:
1. Introduction to R and R Studio
Each module includes code-along tutorials where students actively participate in writing and executing code, and co-working sessions designed to allow students to explore coding and statistics in R in a cooperative group environment with opportunities for one-on-one discussions with the instructor.
Time will also be allotted for open group discussions about alternate modelling or analytical techniques, such as machine learning, zero inflated models, occupancy and detectability models, and developing resampling algorithms.
