With more learning occurring virtually or in hybrid mode, hands-on ways to remotely teach DS are invaluable.

In order to truly collaborate in multi-disciplinary data-driven teams, one needs to consider how to collaborate beyond R.

With more learning occurring virtually or in hybrid mode, hands-on ways to remotely teach DS are invaluable.

With more learning occurring virtually or in hybrid mode, hands-on ways to remotely teach DS are invaluable. Guided simulation exercises in R allow learners to explore concepts deeply, on their own time, and with others. They can also experiment with the simulations, try out edge cases, and challenge their assumptions, leading to more fruitful discussions. The comparison between coefficient estimates in regular, LASSO, and RIDGE regression, or how PCA performs when data are related are great examples of concepts where guided simulations can encourage learners to build intuitive knowledge. This talk explores how to use simulation exercises in R to help learners explore DS concepts and provides examples.
