Learning R in the Context of Open and Reproducible Research

In the summer of 2020 I started recording a bunch of workshops as part of two of the Masters level courses I teach at the University of Manchester. I realised they might have broader interest so I decided to share a subset of them via a website. Hopefully you will find them useful. Workshop 1 provides a general introduction to Open Research and Reproducibility, while the other workshops assume you have some training in undergraduate-level statistics and research design. No previous R experience is expected and I take you through all the stages (right from the basics of installing R and RStudio Desktop) step-by-step.

All of the material in the workshops was created using open source where possible using an Entroware Apollo laptop running GNU/Linux distro Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa). The audio was captured with a Fifine USB Podcasting microphone and the video with a Razer Kiyo webcam. The audio and video were recorded using Open Broadcast Software and edited using Shotcut. If you interested in learning more about open source software, you might be interested in having a look at this set of resources I have put together.
