Course Overview

This intermediate course exposes students to the breadth of resources available in the R tidyverse to build their fluency and confidence when working in R.  The tidyverse is a collection of libraries and functions in R sharing an underlying design (philosophy, grammar, and data structures) that aims to help users create efficient, “tidy” code.  Many of the libraries address the common data wrangling tasks (read, select, filter, gather, spread, modify, recode, summarize) that are the precursors to both data analysis and visualization.  Other libraries address specific tasks (e.g., ggplot2 to create graphs; purr to create functions; broom to tabulate model results) or specific data types (e.g., sf for spatial data, tibbletime for temporal data).

A mix of lectures and exercises will walk students through a series of increasingly complex data manipulation and visualization tasks.  These exercises will emphasize the underlying principles and grammar of the tidyverse to help students transfer what they learn in the examples to their own research coding projects.

This course is organized by Transmitting Science.
