Data Analysis Club Info Session

Join us on February 6th, 2017 from 5:30PM-7PM in LEA 219 to learn about R, the academic and professional perks of mastering it, and the upcoming R-workshops that the PSSA's new Data Analysis Club (DAC) will be hosting!


Following the event, interested students will be able to sign up for the introductory series (4 initial sessions) of R-workshops, which will be held throughout the February-March period on a 2-hour weekly basis, and taught by political science masters student (and R-whiz) Julia Maynard.

Event Agenda:

- Presentation of the DAC by VP Academic, Troy Bjorkman, and Club Coordinator, Marie Lemieux

- Presentation by Dr Erlich & Julia on the academic and professional perks of learning R

- Q&A session

- Opportunity to sign up for 4 sessions led by Julia (with a special discount for those who sign up at the event)

Four-session DAC introductory R-workshops participation: $20

* Price following this event: 25$

** PLEASE NOTE that space is very limited due to the capacity constraints of computer labs at McGill

*** Participation in the R-workshops is open to all McGill Arts students

**** Given interest in this initiative, further sessions are likely to be organised in the future
