Open labs are (mostly) unstructured workshops designed to help you learn R. Each week brief instruction will be provided, followed by time to practice, work together, ask questions and get help. Participants can join the lab any time during the session, and are welcome to work on unrelated projects.

The Open Labs model was established by our colleagues at Columbia with excellent results, and now we’re giving it a try. Our goal is to connect researchers and foster a community for R users on campus.

R Open Labs is a collaboration between the UNC Chapel Hill Libraries Research Hub and the Odum Institute for Research in Social Science.
