This 30 minute large group activity is designed to introduce reproducibility as an important and emerging practice in science. The group work takes advantage of a Shiny app called Serenity that runs in a browser, allows students to work with R based analysis and visualization tools, and submit their work as a reproducible package. This prototype activity is built around a Galapagos Finch morphological dataset with over 7,000 individuals that was published as part of the BIRDD Project.
There is a discussion forum where you are encouraged to ask questions, share ideas for how to use these materials and make them better.
This is version 1 as presented at the 2019 BioQUEST / QUBES Summer Workshop titled, “Evolution of Data in the Classroom: From Data to Data Science”.
