Here’s a common scenario – you’re responsible for introductions to statistics class and while you want to use R in the class (maybe transitioning from another stats package), you’re hesitant. Maybe you have outstanding questions before you make the leap, or you’re concerned about your own expertise. Sound familiar?
Then consider attending an upcoming webinar, “R You Ready? Transitioning Your Intro Stats Course to R,” with presenters Jenine K. Harris and Leslie Ann Shaw. Harris and Shaw had been users of SAS and SPSS in their own instruction before switching to R, and so they know the path forward. In this free, hour-long event, the pair will share the benefits of using and learning R for you and your students, and offer resources that can help you take the next steps.
The webinar takes place at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 25. to register click HERE. The webinar is offered by SAGE Publishing.

Harris also developed and published the odds.n.ends R package available on CRAN, and is leader of R-Ladies St. Louis.
Shaw, a research associate at the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability in the ILR School at Cornell University, is co-author of the latest edition of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics Using R with the late Neil Salkind.
