Dealing with Data
Senior Thesis Workshop
Thursday October 26 12-1 pm
Join faculty, including Associate Professor of Biology Kara Cerveny, for a conversation about key data moments in the thesis-writing process. The workshop will be useful for students early in the thesis process, focusing on what Cerveny calls “predata-ing.”
David Gruber, Assistant Dean of Students for Academic Support, describes predata-ing as:
Helping students think early about how the data they collect, and the questions they ask about their data, contributes to their thesis project. It can be helpful to hear about how other students are approaching data collection and use, and the workshop gives students a chance to learn from each other.
The workshop will also include staff from the Data@Reed team who can provide assistance with finding, managing, analyzing, visualizing, and preserving data.
This series is open to seniors of all majors, including Spring-Falls.
