The idea behind these workshops - facilitated through the WGSA - is that they will be informal, student-led opportunities to share technical knowledge that could help to improve the efficiency with which other students learn those skills. This initiative was born through conversations highlighting similar threads of objectives and frustrations, and an idea that if we can foster more of an academic sharing community within Warnell, perhaps we can all progress more efficiently and more effectively. Not to mention, it may create more of a sense of community by bringing together students from different disciplines within Warnell.

Some potential topics that have been proposed include:
  • Data management and databases
  • LaTeX
  • R packages and modeling techniques
  • R language and programming
  • Bayesian analysis
  • SQL
These are just some topic ideas to get the ball rolling. Having said that, we will be actively seeking students who are interested in leading a workshop. You don't need to be an expert to lead a workshop, and no one is expecting that!  We plan to begin organizing these opportunities in the fall when most students are back on campus. Please let us know if you have a topic you're interested in leading, and also if there are topics you could benefit from if someone were willing to take the lead.

Welcome to the WGSA site

Welcome to the NEW Warnell GSA site! It will be a work in progress as we migrate from the previous site and work out the kinks. Having said that, if you have a passion for web site design and management - please let us know! We hope that this site will continue to provide useful information for Warnell students regarding academics, research highlights from the Warnell community, upcoming events, and opportunities for involvement. Check in often to see what's going on, and always feel free to offer suggestions for improvement!
