Cleaning data with R

In the real-world data is often messy, consisting of missing values, or containing too much information. In some cases, data must be transformed before performing statistical tests. However, directly manipulating our original data files is dangerous because we risk corrupting the information we’ve gathered by accidentally deleting the wrong columns, or applying incorrect filters. Instead of taking this risk, come see how R can be used to clean your data.

Topics covered will include:

  • importing/exporting data
  • interpreting dates in R
  • sub setting,
  • merging datasets
  • finding/replacing values

Note: Please bring your own fully charged laptop with the latest version of R and RStudio installed.

R (Software)

Is R right for you? Data Visualizations in R

This short seminar is designed for people interested in learning why people use the statistical computing program R. R is an open source software program run from the command line that is being used across disciplines to visualize and analyze data. Did you know R can be used in place of license-based (i.e. expensive) programs such as GIS, JMP, or SASS? In this seminar, we will show you some of the publication-quality outputs created by R to see if this program might be right for you. Please note this is a demonstrative workshop designed to help students decide whether this program is right for them. For more instructional workshops on how to use R, please reference the 2-day or 1-day introduction to R workshops, which require no previous R knowledge.

Critical reading strategies for the sciences

Journal articles and scientific papers are the medium through which scientists relay their research to their colleagues. Scientific articles are most often presented in a standard format, beginning with an abstract, followed by an introduction, then methods, results, and finally conclusions. A good paper presents the author’s topic, data, and interpretations clearly and logically. The reader’s challenge is to comprehend the paper’s main ideas despite new vocabulary, unfamiliar tone, and often complex subject matter. This requires active and critical reading. This workshop will offer strategies on how to facilitate active & critical reading while minimizing frustration.

Upcoming Workshops

Dates Location
Friday, May 19, 2017 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm Burnaby, Bennett Library, Rm 7010, Research Commons

Write Right: Expectations and the Writing Process for Graduate Students

Writing in graduate school can be a challenging and confusing prospect. This one day workshop has been developed for graduate students to learn more about the expectations of graduate writing at SFU as well as the writing process.

The workshop will include discussions on:

  • making time for writing,
  • the writing process,
  • strategies for writing, and
  • the revision process.

Participants will also learn how to write ‘cohesively’ and ‘critically’.

Other topics include:

  • transitions,
  • outlining,
  • synthesizing,
  • audience,
  • complex sentences, and
  • various grammatical aspects.

Participants will be expected to bring an example of a future writing assignment and a completed paper, in order to workshop the various topics within their own writing. If you are looking to take your writing to the next level, then this workshop is for you!!

Understanding Your Audience

Getting people to understand your research can make you more successful in building that network — whether it is a potential employer, a faculty member at a conference, or a funding committee. It starts by thinking differently about the needs of your audience — once you understand your audience better, you will be able to satisfy their needs — and make them more receptive to you and your work!

Upcoming Workshops

Dates Location
Friday, June 9, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm Harbour Centre, Rm 1510

Write Conversations: Drafting and Revising: Accepting the Writing Process

Writing shorter pieces was just so much simpler. Now that we are working on longer pieces – term papers, articles, capstone projects, and theses – the writing process has become longer and more complex. Join our conversation about conceptualizing (or reconceptualizing) the steps involved in writing longer works, and how accepting these steps can, as Peter Elbow might say, help you write with power. 

Upcoming Workshops

Dates Location
Monday, June 12, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm Burnaby, Bennett Library, Rm 7010, Research Commons

Using Visual Aids Effectively

Visual aids are used to reinforce or emphasize components of your message, clarify points, and create excitement. Clear pictures, slides and props will help deepen the audeince's level of understanding and engage excitement of the material presented. Join this workshop to learn strategies, tips and new ideas about using visual aids beyond slides.

Write Conversations: Using and Applying Feedback

Our professors’ feedback can be one of the most valuable tools we receive as graduate students, leading to deeply meaningful change in our thinking and writing – if we can figure out what to do with it! Don’t let those teachable moments go to waste. Let’s talk about how we can improve incorporating (and accepting) others’ feedback into our writing process.

Upcoming Workshops

Dates Location
Monday, June 19, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm Burnaby, Bennett Library, Rm 7010, Research Commons

Focusing on the Presenter

In a presentation, 90% of the audience's focus is on the presenter rather than the slides.  The most memorable part of a presentation is the presenter.  Learn about tips on using your voice, facial expressions and other non-verbal cues to make your presentation memorable.

Upcoming Workshops

Dates Location

Lay Language

Lay language is needed in order to convey technical and advanced ideas in ways that are more effective than “dumbing it down”. You may be preparing a grant or fellowship proposal, writing for online purposes or fine tuning your “job talk”— all of which require you to translate your work and research to persons outside of your core field of study.

Upcoming Workshops

Friday, July 28, 2017 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm Burnaby, Bennett Library, Rm 7010, Research Commons

Thesis

Thesis Template and Resources

This demonstration introduces you to the Thesis Submission process and the Thesis Template. It will begin with an introduction to required copyright permissions from the Copyright Office at SFU, followed by a review of the overall submission process (including deadlines and supporting documentation). Additionally, SFU Library's research data specialists will give instruction on how to preserve and, if appropriate, share research data for future uses.

The technical part of the workshop will follow, where you will be walked through the resources on the website and the functionality of the thesis template.

Students are encouraged to bring their own computer and thesis document(s) to work along with the facilitator during the workshop.

Learn how to:

  • request copyright permissions
  • write in the MS Word template-based file
  • format your text using styles
  • bring text in from other documents
  • insert figures, images, and auto-numbered captions
  • generate the Table of Contents, List of Tables, List of Figures, etc.

If you’ve begun writing, send your document to theses@sfu.ca in advance of the workshop; one might be used in demonstrating the Library’s thesis template. After the session, the formatted document will be returned in which the student can continue his/her work.
