Sharing on Short Notice: How to Get Your Materials Online With R Markdown

March 31, 2020

Educators create a lot of files for teaching- slides, exercises, solutions, assignments, data, figures- that all ultimately need to be shared with other people. Having a link for sharing your teaching materials can save you time and pain, but it is hard to get started if you’ve never shared your resources online before. In this webinar, we’ll give a tour of the R Markdown ecosystem for educators that you can start to use right away. We’ll show how it can help you make your teaching more shareable, reproducible, and resilient.


About the speakers

Alison Hill

I studied psychology and quantitative methods, receiving my Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University (2008). For eight years, I was a professor and scientist at Oregon Health & Science University, where my research was funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, and Autism Speaks. I have written numerous scientific journal articles and book chapters on autism and neurodevelopmental disorders. I have developed and delivered workshops, graduate-level courses, and curricula based on teaching R, the tidyverse, and literate programming. You can follow my current work for RStudio Education on GitHub .

Desirée De Leon

I am neuroscience PhD student at Emory University and also a former summer intern at RStudio. This past summer, I worked with Alison Hill to develop a handbook filled with practical advice and resources for educators who teach with R and RStudio. I enjoy spending my time on collaborative projects that involve coding, teaching, and illustration.
