September Office of Research Workshops: Preparing Your Data for Analysis - 9/5 and 9/6 ; Developing Your Research Agenda - 9/26

The Office of Research is pleased to offer the following workshops in September. Please register at the links below.

Preparing Your Data for Analysis

  • Tuesday, Sept. 5, 11-12 p.m. (Virtual)
  • Wednesday, Sept. 6, 11-12 p.m. (Virtual)

Once you’ve designed your research study, the next step is to set up your database in a way that will allow you to answer the questions you’ve asked. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basic principles of database management for quantitative data, with an emphasis on creating files that can be easily understood by team members and, if desired, the public. Once the database is created and the data are entered, the next step is to get to know your data. Part of this workshop will be devoted to the foundations of descriptive analyses. In general, we will focus on concepts and skills that cut across software platforms, but will include screenshots from commonly used platforms, like Excel, SPSS, or R.

This workshop is appropriate for faculty researchers seeking a refresher in the foundation of research design, graduate students or staff beginners.

Developing Your Research Agenda

  • Tuesday, Sept. 26, 10-11 a.m. (Virtual)

This brief workshop will serve as an introduction to developing a research agenda for both new and seasoned faculty members. During this session, we will define "the research agenda" and discuss why it is important and various ways to establish and implement it successfully.

Upon completion of this workshop, you should be able to:

● Articulate why having a research career plan can be beneficial for developing your career as a faculty member

● Describe what models and strategies can be used to develop a new research agenda

● Identify components of a research career plan that fit who you are and what you want to do
