Throughout the year, we teach workshops regularly about different R packages, Python libraries, or computational processing tools. In addition to these, we are also able to teach custom workshops to other research groups or classes. We have collaborated with other research groups to teach tools like MaxQDA, Leximancer, and LIWC (for inquiries on custom workshops, please contact email@example.com).
Resources from our 2019-2020 workshops can be found here.

Occasionally, we will run “boot camps”, which are multi-day workshop series about a quantitative or computational method.
Our first boot camp covered time series methodology and was facilitated by Josephine Lukito and Jordan Foley (March 11-13, 2019).
In addition to teaching our own workshops, we often host workshops from other research groups. We have hosted the following workshops:
