It’s no secret that the data we are presented with every day can affect how we make decisions and see the world around us. So, why not embrace it during Love Data Week, February 11-15!  

In partnership with University Libraries and Knight Lab, Northwestern Information Technology’s Research Computing Services group is hosting the weeklong event. All students are invited to join activities designed to explore the numerous ways that data is present in our everyday lives.

A full list of activities and registration details can be found on the Love Data Week website. Highlights include:

“Working with data requires a diverse set of skills and resources, and opportunities to practice using them are key to learning,” said Christina Maimone, research data services lead in Research Computing Services. “We are excited about this collaboration to support students as they learn about data resources at the University and apply their skills to share data-driven stories about our community.” 

Beyond Data Week

There are many more opportunities for you to expand your computational skillset beyond Love Data Week.

Throughout the year, Research Computing Services sponsors user groups and offers computational workshops—on both campuses— where you can learn and practice programming, data analysis, and data visualization skills using Python, R, SQL, and more. All experience levels are welcome.

Be sure to check out the Researcher’s Toolkit series and sign up for one of these upcoming introductory tutorials.
