Upcoming Library Events

Have you been curious about R but hesitatant to dive in? Would you like to develop reproducible code for processing, cleaning, and visualizing your data? Join us for a 60-minute introductory workshop about data visualization in RStudio using the ggplot2 package. ggplot2 is part of the tidyverse, a coherent system of packages for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. ggplot2 is specifically for declaratively creating graphics, based on The Grammar of Graphics. Part 2 of a 6 part workshop series, Master the Tidyverse.

Are you interested in learning how to code? Or want to expand your preexisting coding knowledge to Python? Python Workshop I: The Very Basics is the first workshop sequence in a three part series. In this workshop attendees will receive a gentle introduction to Python and general coding. This workshop is for those who have never used Python before or have never coded at all. The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees how to open Python and Jupyter Notebooks and gain experience in typing easy and stright forward code.

Have you been curious about R but hesitatant to dive in? Would you like to develop reproducible code for processing, cleaning, and visualizing your data? Join us for a 60-minute introductory workshop about data table manipulation in R Studio using the tidyr package. Tidyr is part of the tidyverse, a coherent system of packages for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. Tidyr provides a set of functions that help you structure data in ways that will make it easier to analyze and visualize. Part 3 of a 6 part workshop series, Master the Tidyverse.
2/7/20 Knight Library - 267B
Watching video without sound is increasingly common as parents view lectures while putting the kids to bed and as working students commute on public transit. Captions are especially beneficial for students who are Deaf, hard of hearing, or who experience challenges in processing audio/visual information. We will review Panopto features that enable instructors and students to quickly and easily add closed-captioning to course media. We will also discuss campus resources for fulfilling specific accommodation requests, including non-English captions.

Join us for a presentation by author Kirby Brown (Associate Professor, Department of English) about his book, "Stoking the Fire: Nationhood in Cherokee Writing, 1907-1970"
2/12/20 Knight Library - Knight Library Browsing Room (106)
As the second installment of the three part series, this workshop delves into the world of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). APIs allow for the extraction and querying of data from online sources without any need to download the data onto your own computer. The benefits of APIs are it allows for the utilization of data that is frequently updated to be utilized continuously, can extract a smaller portion of a much larger data set without have to download it first, and works well with loops and automated processes. This workshop will teach attendees how to process JSON data, format it correctly, and be ready to use for any kind of analysis or exporting to a different data type.
2/13/20 Knight Library - 267B
Have you been curious about R but hesitatant to dive in? Would you like to develop reproducible code for processing, cleaning, and visualizing your data? Join us for a 60-minute introductory workshop about reading data into RStudio using the readr package. Readr is part of the tidyverse, a coherent system of packages for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. The goal of readr is to provide a fast and friendly way to read rectangular data (like csv, tsv, and fwf). It is designed to flexibly parse many types of data found in the wild, while still cleanly failing when data unexpectedly changes. Part 4 of a 6 part workshop series, Master the Tidyverse.

2/17/20 Knight Library - DREAM Lab - Workshop Space (Knight 122A)
This third and final installment of the Python Workshop series exposes attendees to the rapidly growing field of machine learning. During this workshop participants will be taught the basic underlying principles of machine learning and work through an exercise to generate their own machine learning algorithm. This workshop will be geared towards individuals who have little to no background on machine learning but, have some exposure to coding.
2/20/20 Knight Library - 267B
Have you been curious about R but hesitatant to dive in? Would you like to develop reproducible code for processing, cleaning, and visualizing your data? Join us for a 60-minute introductory workshop about data manipulation in RStudio using the dplyr package. Dplyr is part of the tidyverse, a coherent system of packages for data manipulation, exploration and visualization that share a common design philosophy. Dplyr is a grammar of data manipulation, providing a consistent set of verbs that help solve the most common data manipulation challenges. Part 5 of a 6 part workshop series, Master the Tidyverse.
2/21/20 Knight Library - 267B
Dive into video production! Learn how to create high quality videos, how to incorporate slides and lecture, and how to engage your students through discussions, quizzes, and more! We’ll cover best practices including lighting, sound, video length, and captioning. You will leave this workshop with a practical toolkit of video production strategies that support deep and meaningful student learning.
