The goal of this project is to develop and administer workshops that raise the computational competencies of undergraduate and graduate students, specifically addressing skills necessary to succeed in data-intensive scientific research. This suite of workshops will provide students at Montana State University MSU with a basic understanding of coding, with introductions to data processing, visualization, and analysis. Introductory and intermediate R workshops will be offered at the beginning of each semester. Workshops on data visualization in R and data wrangling in R will be developing in Fall 2018 and offered in Spring 2019. In order to broaden the impact of these workshops to a wider audience, curriculum materials and workshop recordings will be published with Creative Commons licenses in MSU ScholarWorks, MSU's open access institutional repository; the MSU ScholarWorks links will be further distributed via a landing page on the Library website, designed by MSU Creative Services.
