Data Carpentry workshop

Data Carpentry workshops are organised at TU Delft by TU Delft Library | 4TU.ResearchData in collaboration with the Data Stewards and the TU Delft Digital Competence Centre (DCC).

A Data Carpentry workshop is a hands-on, four half-days (online due to COVID measures) on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers with little to no prior computational experience, and lessons are domain specific.

TU Delft PhD candidates can receive 2 GS credits in the category of Research Skills (according to the Graduate School education programme) for participating in a Data Carpentry workshop offered by 4TU.Research Data. The requirements to receive the credits are: attending all four of the workshop's half-days and active participation in the sessions.

Data Carpentry workshop for Social Sciences

This workshop teaches management and analysis of tabular data commonly used in social sciences. This is a hands-on training that covers best practices for data organization in spreadsheets, reproducible data cleaning using the tool OpenRefine, and gives an introduction to data analysis and visualization using the programming language R.

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • Organize tabular data, handle date formatting, carry out quality control and quality assurance and export data to use with downstream applications.

  • Explore, summarize, and clean tabular data reproducibly.

  • Import data, calculate summary statistics, and create publication-quality graphics using the programming language R

Next online workshop: 27, 28, 30 June & 1 July | 9:00 - 13:00 hrs (CEST) each day

There are 10 places available for PhD students and researchers from TU Delft.
