Beginner R for Public Health Practitioners and Researchers in Liberia
Classroom Sessions (8 hours)
We will have in-person lectures focused on introducing concepts and skills that are foundational to coding in R, which is a free, open source statistical software. Content will include creating objects (vectors and data frames), using functions, identifying object classes, writing loops, and much more!
Lab Sessions (8 hours)
We will work in small groups at our lab to practice coding basics, such as how to debug, how to identify functions that are needed for a given task, and how to install new packages in R.
Independent practice (16 hours)
Assignments and Activities
Video tutorials and practice exercises are made available on the Student Portal for registered students to access and use. Independent practice will be required to demonstrate successful understanding and application of concepts taught in the classroom.
Certification and Assessment
Students who successfully complete assignments and attend all sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion. A skills report with level of mastery will also be provided based on assessment performance. Documents will reflect joint partnership between Q4D Lab and ULSOPH.
