Q-Step Lecturer Dr John Moriatry, in conjunction with the Northern Ireland Longitudinal Study User Forum, recently organised a three day masterclass at Queen's in August. Dr Colin Gillespie of Jumping Rivers was invited to deliver the course, which focused on “Data Analysis and Visualisation on the R Platform”. Among the twenty attendees were Q-Step students and bursary holders, as well as postgraduate students from the schools of Social Science, Education and Social Work, and History, Anthropology, Politics and Philosophy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Q-Step Masterclass in the use of R statistical software. It was engaging and provided an in-depth introduction to the software. I would highly recommend it!" (Rachel Keating, recent MRes Social Science graduate)
