CARMA is pleased to announce details for its upcoming fall set of four live panel events, to be offered as the CARMA OveRview SeRies: Introduction to R for Organizational Research. These events are available to CARMA’s Institutional Members and will be delivered live on four dates using the zoom platform. Recordings will also be available to members in the CARMA Video Library.
The OveRview SeRies was developed because organizational researchers have shown an increasing interest in R, a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. In recent years many researchers have transitioned from commercial statistical platforms to R because of its vast number of add-on packages and its large, supportive community. This interest has resulted in use of R for a variety of quantitative and qualitative analyses.
In this live panel series, CARMA Short Course Instructors and other distinguished panelists will share their experiences with their transition to R, demonstrate the use of R as applied to substantive research questions, and illustrate some of R’s distinctive advantages. Each of the four panel sessions will conclude with live Q&A with viewers.
The first panel session will occur on September 27, 12:00-1:15 PM ET.
