Teaching

Background:

  • Most mobules hoping to offer R versions of computer practicals
  • No School-wide coordination on what packages used
  • Many module organisers & practical leaders new to R
  • New MSc in Data Science likely (surely?) involves R training

Next steps?

  • Organise a meeting of module organisers and R users
  • Discuss ‘roadmap’ for R at the School: look ahead
  • Agree process for developing curriculum so R-learning in different modules mutually supportive
