About the workshop

This workshop, intended for those who have at least an introductory competence in R, will teach participants how to use RMarkdown. RMarkdown is a flexible filetype available in RStudio that integrates the ability of running R code with the features of word processing software.

Participants will learn how to create interactive webpages, beautifully and professionally formatted PDF documents, and potentially other types of professional documents that truly set them apart from typical Microsoft Word documents. A basic understanding of R coding is required to participate in this course.

The topics covered include:

  • RMarkdown documents
  • Markdown document formatting
  • LaTeX document formatting
  • Integrating customized tables and figures into documents
  • Creating various document types, such as html and PDF documents


  • Bring your own laptop, with the latest version of R and RStudio installed
  • Participants should have at least an introductory competence in R and a basic understanding of R coding is required

Note: This workshop was originally scheduled on Thursday October 12, 2023.
