Learn RMarkdown: Making Research Easier with Literate Programming and Dynamic Documents
With Dr Micah Wilson
Time & Location
10 Mar 2022, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm AWST
Future of Work Institute, 78 Murray Street, Perth WA, Australia
About the Event
Part of Future of Work Institute (FOWI) Academy Workshop Series
RMarkdown is a tool for building dynamic documents in the R Programming Language. It enables you to connect the output from statistical analyses directly into documents like Microsoft Word, PDFs, websites, or presentations. Rmarkdown has many uses, including: automating your results-section writeup, building easily updatable webpages of analyses for stakeholders, and even simplifying the process of building websites or typesetting professional-looking books!
This session is targeted at beginners and will introduce you to the basics of Rmarkdown and its different applications (incl. reproducibility and literate programming) using interactive exercises and a “follow along” tutorial. Time will be dedicated to questions and extended demonstrations.
About the speaker
Dr Michael David Wilson is a Forrest Prospect Fellow at the Curtin Future of Work Institute and holds a PhD in Human Factors Psychology from UWA. His expertise areas include computational methods, workplace performance, safety-critical environments, dynamic models, and programming with R.
- A laptop with an installation of R and Rstudio will be required.
- Prior exposure to the R programming language (e.g., an introduction workshop; a beginner’s tutorial) is highly recommended, but not strictly essential.
- Detailed instructions for session preparation will be emailed to participants a week before the session, and available here.
