Mon 26 April 2021 2 pm – Zoom & r familiarisation session (optional)
27 & 29 April 2021 9:30 – 5 pm
Short Course Description
This 2-day interactive online course will help you understand the benefits of data transformation tools (such as R). You will learn about aspects such as auditable workflow, repeatability, time-saving, improving efficiency and reduced risk of data loss. You will participate in practical data transformation tool exercises using real environmental datasets to combine and manipulate datasets in different formats from different sources, leading to analysis-ready data. The course also covers cleaning and validation of datasets and best-practice for documentation of scripts and workflows.
We will do many practical exercises. For these, you will be in virtual breakout rooms in pairs or small groups. The facilitators will move from room to room to help you with your exercises
By the end of the course, you will have gained sufficient data transformation skills and knowledge to apply this to your own datasets and projects.
