New Software Short Courses Offered for Fall 2017

10 August 2017—SDS is excited to offer four new software short courses this fall. Introduction to SAS, taught by SDS consultant Michael Mahometa, covers all of the basics of data manipulation and analysis in this powerful software. New users will learn how to import data, create informative graphs, and run descriptive and inferential analyses.

Building on the success of our Excel Data and Graphics course, SDS lecturer Kristin Harvey will also be teaching Excel Introductory Statistics, a brand new course that will show participants how to conduct common inferential statistical analyses using the Data Analysis Tookpak in Excel.

Finally, the popular “R Analysis and Graphics” intermediate-level course has been split into two separate courses so that participants can dive more fully into each of these topics. R Analysis will cover topics such as t-tests, ANOVA, linear and logistic regression, and mixed models. R Graphics will cover both basic R plots as well as the ggplot2 package.

All of SDS’s software and topic short courses are available to UT Austin students, faculty, and staff for $30. Registration opens Wednesday, August 30, and seating is limited. To find out more information about our courses and to see the complete fall 2017 course schedule, visit the short course website.
