Sign up for Data Workshops at UVM Libraries

Date: 
Thursday, January 11, 2024

Need help with your research data? Statistical Design and Data Specialist, Maria Sckolnick, offers Random Chats About Data – workshops that cover a variety of data related topics.

Maria says: Workshops are in person to facilitate conversations and discussions. I will touch on the big concepts and then we will look at the nuances on how to apply these bigger ideas to your data for your personal research goals. This will help you get comfortable with data analysis as well as help you understand and interpret data presented in the literature. Please come prepared to talk about your own specific data questions.
