Instruction in Reproducible Research: Educational Outcomes: Project TIER Spring Symposium

Hosted in collaboration with the Sheffield Methods Institute and the UK Reproducibility Network

Date: various anticipated dates are: March 5, March 12, March 19, March 26, April 23, April 30, May 7, and May 14.

Project TIER is hosting an eight-part virtual event exploring the educational purposes of teaching students transparent and reproducible methods of quantitative data analysis. The event is in collaboration with the Sheffield Methods Institute and the UK Reproducibility Network. 

The Symposium will focus on the diverse ways in which teaching reproducible research methods can reinforce principles that are fundamental to higher education (e.g., the importance of reasoned argument based on verifiable evidence), and contribute to students' broad intellectual development (e.g., gaining confidence in their ability to independently generate meaningful insights into real and important issues).

Keynote presentations will be given by Nicole Janz (International Relations, University of Nottingham) and Nick Horton (Mathematics and Statistics, Amherst College)
