Description:
Reproducible research is an important topic and an area of increasing emphasis in the scientific community. Advances have been made that facilitate sharing research outputs (e.g., data and code) such that other researchers can verify results. One such advancement is R Markdown which enables seamless integration of statistical computing (e.g., R) with text for generating research and analysis reports. This is also useful for those who repeat similar analyses for multiple datasets over time. In this session, we will demonstrate how to use R Markdown for creating reproducible research reports. This session will be interactive and participants are encouraged to bring their laptop with R and R Studio installed. Lunch will be provided for this session only!
Goals and Target Audience:
The goal of this session will be to demonstrate R Markdown to participants, enabling them to do reproducible research reporting. The skills learned in this session will help promote reproducible research in the scientific community. Participants will be CSU researchers.

Description:
This session explores equity through weight-sharing. Using principles of contact improvisation, a movement practice created in the late sixties/early seventies, we will find ways to balance and move with another person through the cultivation of personal awareness and attention to touch. Contact improvisation is a democratic form of movement - two people of any shape and size can find ways to move together equally. Please come in sneakers and clothes you are comfortable moving in.
Goals and Target Audience:
Anyone is welcome.
