Pre-conference Day

The pre-conference day will be held on August 25th and will include one workshop and a Lancaster Babylab Tour. Pablo Bernabeu will host this workshop entitled R for Resources, Reproducibility and oppRtunities: One-day exploration using developmental data’.

 

  • R is an open-source programming language and software environment that is increasingly prevalent in developmental psychology. It facilitates reproducibility throughout the analysis pipeline, from the initialdata pre-processing and visualisation, to the statistical analysis and the final report of the results. In this hands-on and interactive workshop, we will practise using R by going through tasks such as merging data sets, plotting, statistical analyses, savingand reporting results, and further, rendering a reproducible paper using R Markdown.  
  • To cater to varying levels of experience, tiered tasks will be used so that initiated users can improve their skills while beginners can learn the basics. We will introduce several useful packages for (but notlimited to) developmental psychological research, including ‘dplyr’, ‘ggplot2’, ‘lme4’, ‘knitr’, ‘rmarkdown’ and ‘bookdownplus’.  

This is an ideal opportunity for early career researchers and PhD students to gain an initial insight into frequently used methodologies. The pre-conference day will also include a tour of the Lancaster Babylab including a number of demonstrations from researchers currently working in the Infancy and Early Development Research Group.

Numbers will be limited so we recommend early booking for those wishing to attend.  Attendance at the pre-conference day will incur a small extra fee on top of the standard registration fee. 

The pre-conference day will be held  at the Levy Lab (TBC).
