Workshops (20-30 offered per semester)
The Stata and Data Manipulation workshops will still be running as the college moves to remote teaching; I've taught digital classes and seminars that emphasize participation and critical thinking, and am looking forward to trying it out in the new context. The Stata workshops originally scheduled for Mon 3/16 and Wed 3/18 will be rescheduled to Mon 3/23 and Wed 3/25 at the same times. Sadly, I cannot offer pizza digitally.
The workshops will rely on the following requirements:
- laptops/desktops (Mac or PC only)
- strong internet
- local installations of Stata
If you do not have these capabilities, please send me an email. There will be recordings of the materials, but the quality of the recorded material won't be known until we try it!
Workshop topics range from introductions to programming in R or Stata, How to Read a Quantitative Paper, and Sampling and Election Polls. Workshops are offered based on demand; not all are offered each semester.
Research mentoring, data science interview preparation, and programming consultations
Students seeking help with research, data science interviews, and programming homework can make appointments at the links below. If you think your appointment will last over 30 minutes, please book at least two appointment slots!
If these times don't work, feel free to send an email to email@example.com to schedule an appointment.
If you have questions about the types of classes that will provide data science skills, the SSQL can provide information about which classes you can take and the skills that might be helpful to acquire.
Teaching Assistant opportunities are available for students with strong Stata and R skills. If you’d like to TA for one of the workshops, please email Ella Foster-Molina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
